Go Low-Level Types & How They Work

Talk Description:

Types are really important in Golang. Nearly everything has a type. And a large chunk of Go code exists purely to declare & work with those types. So everyone can benefit from learning more about them. A lot of the features & nuances of types often get overlooked when writing in Go. This talk is here to help explain what is going on behind the scenes of even the most basic types. Topics will include:

Slices, arrays & maps
Strings, byteslices, & runes
Constants & fuzzy typing
Ints can change
The magic of empty structs
Anything can interface


Carson Anderson is a fixture in the local Kubernetes, Golang, & Meet-Up communities. He has been working in the world of cloud computing for over 8 years with the last 5 heavily focused on containerization & distributed systems. He can be found contributing to open-source projects of all kinds, attending local meetups, & landing on the Mun in Kerbal Space Program.
