Golang is a language heavily used for web api building. What makes a good api? How can we build apis that are robust & extensible? Writing a good API is a evolving process.

If you are coming to Go from a different language you might be used to using some framework for building REST APIs. Although that seems to increase developer productivity in the beginning, I feel like you loose a lot of visibility & flexibility because of the abstraction. The Go ecosystem favors libraries over frameworks. We will use a library to build our API. Using a library gives us the ability to easily change & modify our API.

In this workshop we will take a data set & make an API out of it & learn some of the best practices in making a good API.

Attendees can expect to learn:

- How a REST API works
- How to make an API
- How to extend an API


- Basic understanding of Go & a Go runtime is useful.
- Install go -
