Using Go to build a REST API: yes, it’s a good match!
Link to full Meetup Talk
At the Paris API meetup, at the novemver 2017 session, I gave a talk titled Using Go to build a REST API: yes, it’s a good match! with my colleague Mina.
In this talk, we explained how we are using Go to build our new ad-tech platform REST APIs:
- how we wrote a custom DSL in Go to define all our endpoints
- how we test our endpoints with BDD-style scenarios
- how we handle versioning of our REST API, and the gotchas to avoid
- the benefits of using Go in term of monitoring
