Different jobs require different tools. There are times where PHP isn’t the right tool for the job. When those times arise, Go can be a great alternative tool to use. Go is a compiled programming language created by Google and used in emerging tools like Docker, and Kubernetes. This session will take you through the basics of Go, compare and contrast it with PHP, and give you some pointers as to what problem areas can you best use Go to compliment your PHP applications.

Nice introduction, I expected a bit more of what makes golang different than other languages.

Good introduction for such noobs as we php programmers ;)

Interesting talk but maybe it needed some more clear examples on when to choose golang.

I honestly expected more examples on clear uses cases where golang was a better fit than php. Then again I liked the comparison of code between golang and php. And very well given talk!

Good talk!

Nice introduction to Go. Definitely will give it a go! (ba-dum tsss) A few more pointers on when to use it might have been a good addition.

Came for a decent introduction, hoped for more, but these kind of topics are really hard to do deliver an extraordinary experience on. It was decent and I was not disappointed.

Good talk and great speaker! Felt inspired to try it myself.

Nice introduction for non-Go developers.
