Flatbuffers for Golang: Fast and Fun Serialization

Robert Winslow talks about FlatBuffers, an efficient cross platform serialization library for C++, Java, C#, and Go. It was created at Google specifically for game development and other performance-critical applications. It provides access to serialized data without parsing/unpacking, while also still supporting data structure evolution (forwards/backwards compatibility).


Winslow is a consulting CTO to early stage startups. "I like math, long walks on the beach, and large markets."
