I'm very glad to be involved with the very first Go challenge. If you're looking for a way to sharpen your programming skills, try solving this challenge!

Canary also has a great mobile preview feature
 
Chrome Canary just landed one of the best improvements to the Network panel in a long time: the timeline bars show you where the time was spent! 

In the below screenshot for theverge.com it is now trivial to spot cases (the colors correspond to the various connection stages) where downloads are taking a long time; if and where you need to optimize your TLS stack; if the server is taking a long time to respond (aka, slow TTFB); if a new connection is established or if the request was able to reuse a previous connection to the server, and more... And, of course, if you hover over the bar you'll get a more detailed breakdown with exact timing information.

That just about sums up my experience with the language better than I could have said it.

When I write code, I don't always look at all the related tests. Having the enforced "contract" inline with the code ensure that the intent is well communicated and made clear. As mentioned earlier, I don't use this approach in a lot of places, only when I want to really communicate that the interface has to be implemented.

As Microsoft moves to "Windows as a service," it's time to get everyone on board.

A couple days ago, we upgraded the Splice servers to +The Go Programming Language 1.4
The upgrade process was straight forward, we updated our CI and after testing on staging for a little while deployed the new binaries to prod. 

Our APIs and workers process TBs of data and as you can see, the already impressively low memory footprint was improved by around 20-25%.   And yes, the graph is correct, Splice's backend uses 10-15MBs for its API and 5-10MBs for its async/concurrent process (aka worker), that's the total memory allocation per server.

After running Go in prod for around 1.5 years, I can say it was really the best option for what we needed at Splice. We now have an amazing backend team, a Service Oriented Architecture and low hosting and maintenance cost.

I can't imagine use of this but idiomatic way of doing same thing is http://play.golang.org/p/bnZGUdRFkP - doesn't need any explaining.

Very good authentic Italian food with a very lively and entertaining owner. The food is made fresh daily , prices are reasonable (at least for dinner time) and the lasagna and Tiramisu are some of the best I had in France.

Excellent 3 star camping with heated pool, great facilities and nice staff. Very quiet in the evening and delicious handmade pizza cooked in a wood fired oven. At the time of this review this camping offers great value for the price (quite cheap actually, €15-22/night). This is a family and pet-friendly camping so depending on what you are after, it might not be for you. One last thing, the beach is about a 10 minute drive, so don't expect to be able to walk there from the camping site.
