slackd : Real-time log based alerting
Logging is a great way to know what is going on in your application, but logs do not make the data easily accessible. How often am I getting a specific error? What is the context ? slackd focuses on anomalies and areas of the code which the developer flags as interesting.

Spelunking in the standard library: A net/http adventure!
An exploration of the net/http package, the things it does for you, and the interfaces it exposes, and an overview of some packages that work well with it.

WebSockets in Go
We will be looking into websockets, how to create them and connect from client for transmission of the data, we'll write a server and implement sockets inside it and echo the request.

Quick & Scalable Development - Micro-Services Monolithically?
How to design and rapidly develop a backend that could be made to scale. More specifically by using Go interfaces, you could develop your app monolithically as a bunch of services. Because each service is an interface, you could easily swap out your service with a network-based implementation, and separate into smaller micro-services.

Distributed Bug Tracking in the 21st Century
We will explore the idea of a distributed bug tracking system, and take a look at an implementation, by Dave MacFarlane himself.
