What we need for Golang to really provide the best IOT/robotics development tools:

Great Bluetooth LE support

Great OpenCV support

Golang on RTOS like Zephyr, MBED

Shared set of low level hardware interfaces

Why Open Source?

Let’s discuss the philosophy of open source. Is the purpose of OSS just to “save money”, or perhaps there is something else to it…


Interesting Go Projects and News

Proposal: Standard Logger Interface

#golang logging library maintainers: It’s time we agreed on a common interface and converged so we don’t have so much mass confusion.

Package Oriented Design

Floppy Gopher

GDB GUI

GopherCon Speakers Announced!! (how could we forget that??)


Free Software Friday!

Each week on the show we give a shout out to an open source project or community that’s made an impact in our day to day developer lives.
