An excellent presentation on using some of the Go tools to optimize performance:
Here’s the info from the talk on his github:
This is another excellent view into the Go ecosystem. Go is not as fast as C++, nor as safe as Rust, nor as correct as Haskell, nor as easy as Python, but it is fast, safe, and correct enough, and is far more readable that most languages. And the tooling is excellent. If you need to chase down a performance problem, Go provides the tools you need and you can even run them in a production binary if needed. For the cloud and IoT edge work I’m doing, Go is a great fit.
