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.

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.
