Talking on the Food Fight Show
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of talking with Bryan and Nathan on the Food Fight Show, a devops focused podcast, talking about PaaS, Cloud Foundry, where PaaS is heading, and also talking about Go and the influence it will have on operations.

It isn't really a secret that Apcera has been really looking at Go... just look follow me or Derek on Twitter. We think Go will be growing wildly in cloud services and high scale environments in the future. It is a very elegant language for server/systems development, has a solid base, growing ecosystem, and it will continue to grow and mature in the space. In some ways, I see it as solving the problems people were saying Node solved, but in a better way.
I'm starting to put together a few little mini posts about some of my adventures (or misadventures) with Go. I've been really starting to like it a lot, and there are some powerful things you can do with it that are encapsulated in a simple way. But it also has some idiosyncrasies, some of which are just ironing out as the language/ecosystem matures, and others are design decisions.
