Go at Cloudflare
Jaana, Jon, and Mat are joined by John Graham-Cumming, the CTO of Cloudflare, to discuss Go at Cloudflare along with John’s unique involvement in Gordon Brown’s apology to Alan Turing. How did Cloudflare get started with Go? What problems do they use Go for and when to they turn to other languages? And how exactly did John’s petition for an apology to Turing get so popular?
