Some applications and programs can be very time sensitive – and they often need to return something in a timely fashion. However, it’s not always within our control to set a cut off point these operations. Go makes this process somewhat easier though through it’s use of goroutines and channels.
In the example below we execute LongRunningProcess which we’ve given 3 seconds complete – but it contains code to sleep for 5, so it will never complete.
