I’ve recently taken on a new role at Microsoft as a Cloud Developer Advocate for Open Source projects on Azure. My purview is Go, Linux, Containers, and Kubernetes. While brainstorming ways to learn about all that Azure has to offer an idea occured to me: Why not move Gophercon over to Azure as a learning tool. I’ve decided to do just that and share my learnings along the way. This year we used Buffalo and Ponzu as the main components of the website for Gophercon.
Release day is always fun, and Go releases get me pretty excited. The 1.7 release is especially nice, so I’m going to mention some of my favorite changes in this release.
