Go for the Would-Be Network Programmer

Go for the Would-Be Network Programmer

An introduction to writing secured network applications with Google Go.

Talk objectives:

In this session we'll cover enough Go to write generic HTTP, TCP/IP and UDP applications using the standard package library and closures.

We'll also see how to scale them with goroutines, Go's standard concurrency primitive.

Target audience:

Anyone with an interest in Go, basic network applications or data security.

Then we'll look at how to secure them with AES and RSA encryption.
