Distributed Systems in Go: The Good, The Bad, and The Otherwise

Building large-scale distributed systems is a challenge in any language: what about Go makes distributed system-building easier, what makes it harder, and what won't work at all? Former Google software engineer Ben Sigelman answers these questions in his talk about creating distributed systems in Go. He also addresses the fundamentals of healthy distributed systems and the joys and pitfalls of building them in Go.

This talk was given at the GoSF meetup at Pivotal.
