Go Generics: Applying the Draft Design to a Real-World Use Case

Last Tuesday, the Go team published an updated draft design for Generics in Golang, and they are providing an experimentation tool, which lets you play around with generics. This makes it easier to see what your code would look like when using generics. We’re super excited about this and can’t wait to try it out! We’ll be using our use case to show what impact generics could have on production code.


New command line client, back to Go!

It feels like a lifetime ago, well, 3 years is a lifetime in tech, that I wrote a blog post explaining how we rewrote our API server from Golang to Ruby on Rails. Here we are and I'm about to explain about how we've been back and forth doing the same thing for our CLI. Just after that time, I wrote the first version of our CLI utility in Golang. However, with only me knowing Golang on the team, we weren't able to achieve the velocity and pace of adding features within the CLI as I'd like.


Evaluating Go's Package Management and Module Systems

When you're evaluating a language for your next project, few things are more important than available third-party libraries and the package manager that ties them together. While early versions of Go lacked a package manager, they've made up for lost time. In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah introduces us to go's module ecosystem to help us decide if go is "a go" for our next project.


How to Pick a Winning Go Module

With a near-endless list of Go Modules, it can be overwhelming trying to decide which is best for your Go build. For new Go developers, it can be difficult to pick a winner for your specific use case. This phenomenon is nothing new. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why open-source is so important for developers. Oftentimes, when a module is published by a developer, it was likely developed to solve a specific problem that they are facing.

Building Secure Go Projects with Free Vulnerability Scanning in VSC Code

Go 1.13 introduced important security features to Go Modules including a checksumdb that verifies that your dependencies haven’t been tampered with. While the integrity of the data can be verified this way - Go Modules can still have security vulnerabilities. Join this webinar to watch a technical walkthrough on how to keep your Go Modules secure.

Detecting, Reporting and Mitigating Vulnerabilities for Go Modules

Go Module vulnerabilities frustrate the lives of many Go developers and can turn a simple project into a battle of endurance between the dev and their patience. With the process of CI/CD shifting left more and more, it’s becoming even more pertinent for developers to be able to track and report vulnerabilities as early as possible. JFrog GoCenter can help track and mitigate vulnerabilities and make the lives of Go developers easier.

Go Big With Pseudo-Versions and GoCenter

Go modules have helped bring order to Go development, but there’s been some disorder lurking. Managing module pseudo-versions can be difficult, especially with some of the latest changes to Go. JFrog GoCenter, the free repository of versioned Go modules, now includes some important updates that can help you stay on course. Let’s take a look at how pseudo-versions work, and what you can expect from those changes. We also offer some guidance on keeping your Go builds working as you upgrade to Go 1.13 and later.
