REST-APIs are today’s foundation of many modern software projects. Whether simple web-services, more complex web-apps,mobile-clients or rich client applications, all of them can simply be integrated to server side business logic published via REST endpoints.

This presentation proposes an alternative approach to the development of REST APIs in Java, Ruby or Python: The development of REST APIs in Go. Go is a statically typed, compiled and performant Programming language that is well suited for building REST-APIs without using an additional web framework. Go is easy to learn, has a simple and powerful concurrency model and outstanding HTTP, REST- und JSON-support. Go compiles to statically linked binaries that are cross-plattform enabled and therefore easy deployable without the need of any external dependency on the target platform.
This talk targets server side web developers and introduces the major aspects of REST development in Go followed by a simple example from an e-commerce context. Return fun to backend programming!
1. Go-Intro
2. Go’s standard library packages net/http and encoding/json
3. Domain-Model, Ressources and URIs
4. Live-Demo
5. Testing
6. Optional: Deployment
The talk prepares participants to form their own opinion whether Go will be an alternative to their traditional REST API development.
