If you're a fan of the Go language, you'll want to check out this series on Azure Friday:
Go on Azure: Part 1—Build Go apps with Visual Studio Code | Azure Friday - Ramya Achutha Rao (Sr. Software Engineer) joins Erik St. Martin to show you how to build Go apps with Visual Studio Code. She will be using the Go extension for VS Code which provides smart code completion, integrated debugging and a whole lot more. In the end, still using VS Code, she'll create a Docker container for the app that is ready to be pushed to the cloud.
Go on Azure: Part 2—CI/CD, Docker, and Kubernetes with VSTS | Azure Friday - Cloud Developer Advocates Jessica Deen and Erik St. Martin show you how to get started with DevOps using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) for Go developers. Learn how to use the code you already have on GitHub, connect it to VSTS, and then build CI/CD pipelines to deploy your Go apps to Kubernetes on Azure. You'll also learn how you can get started with DevOps Projects on Azure, which will take care of all the scaffolding for you, including your VSTS account if you don't have one.
Go on Azure: Part 4—Cloud-native Go apps | Azure Friday - Josh Gavant (Sr. Program Manager) joins Erik St. Martin to talk about cloud-native Go apps. Azure offers a whole host of services that Go developers can use to build apps with strong security and scalability. For example, see how Josh implements strong authentication with Azure AD, adds caching with Redis Cache, stores any kind of data on Azure Storage, and sends messages and queues jobs with Service Bus.
Go on Azure: Part 6—Events and Messaging | Azure Friday - Messaging services are key components of all microservices-based architectures. David Justice (Sr. Software Engineer) joins Erik St. Martin to show you some of the options for messaging services on Azure, including demos on using them with Go apps.
