A List of Interviews of Gophers

by Satish Talim on August 14, 2014

Since May 2014, I have been busy organizing India’s first-ever Go programming conference “GopherConIndia“. The experience so far has been awesome and I get a chance to interact with Gophers from all over the world. For GopherConIndia, we have interviewed many Gophers.

Below, I have created a list of all the interviews so far but please feel free to add to this list, any other Gopher interview(s) that I might have missed out.

  1. 1. Cory LaNou

    Cory LaNou

    His interview.

    Some highlights:

    • I think the best way to get a real jump on the Go language is to either attend a workshop, meetup, or find somebody that is willing to pair with you that is already experienced with Go.
    • Interfaces and composition. That is the real magic sauce in Go.
  2. 2. William Kennedy

    William Kennedy

    William is a speaker at GopherConIndia 2015.

    His interview.

    Some highlights:
    - I think the next evolution for Go will be support for building desktop and mobile applications.
    - Take advantage of all the Go related documentation, blogs, local Meetups and groups like Slack that exist today. Don’t be afraid to ask your questions and get involved.

  3. 3. Darshan Puttannaiah

    Darshan Puttannaiah

    Darshan is the Founder and CEO at Qwinix Technologies. Qwinix are GopherConIndia's first Gold Sponsor.

    The interview.

    Some highlights:
    - The Indian community around Go is very vibrant.
    - We do see Go being adopted worldwide by majority of the companies, big and small for developing quality software products.

  4. 4. Dave Cheney

    Dave Cheney

    Dave is a speaker at GopherConIndia 2015.

    His interview.

    Some highlights:
    - I think the potential of Go as a language to teach the art and the profession of programming is enormous.
    - Understand the power of interfaces, they are one of Go’s great gifts, potentially more important than channels or goroutines.
    - By removing inheritance from the language, the opportunity to practice the mantra of composition over inheritance is made manifest, and fighting it will only lead to frustration.

  5. 5. Shiju Varghese

    Shiju Varghese

    The interview will go live on Fri. 7th Nov. 2014.

  6. 6. Jiahua Chen

    Jiahua Chen

    Jiahua is a speaker at GopherConIndia 2015.

    His interview.

    Some highlights:
    - Go is already awesome on the server side; client side (desktop and mobile) with native GUI is the next big thing to do with it.
    - I believe Go is new and for the young generation like me, so I continue working with it.

    You should also read Fireside chat with Jiahua Chen, creator of Gogs (Go Git Service) and Macaron.

  7. 7. Ben Johnson

    Ben Johnson

    His interview.

    Some highlights:

    • I find that porting libraries from other languages to Go is incredibly educational.
    • Getting a sense of "idiomatic Go" is the hardest part about Go.
  8. 8. Mark Bates

    Mark Bates

    Mark is a speaker at GopherConIndia 2015.

    His interview.

    Some highlights:

    • I can see Go doing what Ruby did about 6 or 7 years ago. Really revolutionizing and liberating people to build bigger, more sophisticated apps quickly, that also scale well right from the beginning.
    • My biggest advice to developers is to embrace the Go way of writing code. Don't try to force the patterns and techniques from your previous language on it. You'll struggle and fail.
  9. 9. Levi Cook

    Levi Cook

    The interview will go live on Friday, 10th Oct. 2014.

  10. 10. Matt Holt

    Matt Holt

    His interview.

    Some highlights:

    • You'll see the typical gripes about generics, dependency management, and frameworks. My response is usually "Go has another way."
    • Go has an exciting future, with an ARM port being actively developed and better garbage collection well on the way.
  11. 11. Brian Ketelsen

    Brian Ketelsen

    His interview.

    Some highlights:

    • If you don't take the time to learn and truly understand Go's interfaces, you'll be doomed to write Go code that looks like your other favorite languages.
    • Embrace interfaces and channels!
    • My biggest frustration has been my inability to convince everyone I know, to stop writing code in other languages and start writing Go code.
