Talk 1: The Story of How and Why Uber is Using Go

Lena Morozova from Uber will tell the story of how Go went from being used by a few enthusiastic developers at Uber to becoming the most popular language for microservices in use there. She'll talk about how they started and why they decided to use Go.

Some of the tips she'll address include:
• Go-common
• Dependency injection
• Semver
• Monorepo
• Custom solutions: Fx, UberFx, and Glue

Come learn where they failed and how that led them to solutions that they think are pretty darn neat.
