gRPC provides support for implementing streaming endpoints as well as streaming support in their clients. Bidirectional streaming is useful if you want both server and client to be able to communicate to the other side independently in a full duplex fashion. In this article, I will dig into how to use the streaming gRPC Go client to talk to a streaming API endpoint.

gRPC is a modern RPC framework and it looks like the future for our web services. A couple of recent announcements are exciting times for developing web services. AWS launched AWS Application Loadbalancer with support for HTTP/2 I’ve been writing HTTP/1.1 web services using Go for about eighteen months. Along the way we started using Protocol Buffers and found them to be great for defining and documenting the message format. gRPC adds service definitions for Remote Proceedure Calls over HTTP/2 along with plenty of other niceness for writing services. I wrote a test project to see what gRPC might look like for our uses. Here’s what I really liked.

Microbenchmarks are all fine and good, but the first step from benchmarking one function and understanding the performance of a complex application in production is a doozie. This talk will cover seven different ways to profile a running Go application. We'll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches, and highlight some new options available in Go 1.7.

Literals in source code allow to specify fixed values like numbers, strings or booleans. Go belongs to languages among f.ex. JavaScript or Python with ability to create using literals also compound types: arrays, maps, slices or structs. Golang’s simplicity and brevity reveals in composite literals too where single syntax is used for those types.
