There's many times that the daily grind pushes you out of your comfort zone. Sometimes, you're in a bind and the best way forward is fashioning a tool out of what's available. Sometimes, those really are nails you see around you. This class looks at some of the normal, and some of the not so normal, uses for Golang in Systems Administration.

Who should attend: 
  • New Golang programmers who want to get a better idea of using the language (should have some familiarity with Golang).
  • Old dogs looking for new tricks.
Take back to work: 
  • Several MacGyver tools that may come in handy.
  • Techniques and approaches for some out of the box thinking.
Topics include: 
  • Running a quick and dirty TLS secured web server for file transfers
  • Collecting and serving up system metrics
  • Driving web applications from the command line
  • Speak http2
  • Fanout shell results from one system to many with ssh
  • Roll your own container system
  • and more
