APIs and Microservices With Go


Vinicius Pacheco - APIs and Microservices With Go [EuroPython 2016] [19 July 2016] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain] (

In this talk we show how the Go language helped us get a high performance in a concise and simple API. Everything will be exemplified using the backdrop of a real case of API registrations. We will see how we went from 200 to 19,000 records per second to the impacts of this rapid growth and the consequences of Go of use. We also show how our microservices architecture was used in the project.

This talk is about Go, software architecture and parallelism. How we went from legacy, complex and slow software to new, speed, resilient and maintainable software. I'll start the talk showing the problemas and the challenges that my team had received. After that, I'll show the tests, tests of performance and the options that we did considering technologies and strategies of development. The difficulties and problems also will be show. Also I talk about:

  • Goroutines
  • Resilient patterns
  • Go tools
  • Architecture
  • Web performance

How we leave of the Java ecosystem to new free ecosystem with microservices and how Go help us.
