Finished Reading: Go in Practice

Yesterday I mentioned I was close to finish reading Go in Practice and today, I was two chapters away, on my way to work I finished one of the and tonight before heading home I tweeted about it

Similar to Docker in Practice this book is all about tips, tricks and techniques related to the Go programming language. My favorites, in order of appearance, are:

  • Graceful shutdown using manners
  • Several techniques for recovering from panics
  • Embedding files in a binary
  • Passing and handling errors over HTTP
  • Chapter 10: Communication between cloud services
  • Chapter 11: Reflection and code generation

Really happy with this book, it complements Go In Action and Go Web Programming.
