Topic: Avoiding Gotchas in Go Runtime Behaviors

Go is often perceived as a simple language, but there still could be “interesting” behaviors in this language (ranging from how the language is designed to Go runtime behaviors itself)

Here we want to share interesting stuff we found from Go, some are from real life experiences (read: bugs), some are encountered while digging through documentations, GitHub issues or tech talks by others.

The hope is we could avoid doing the same mistakes in the future, share some good practices with each other, or simply just to appreciate the design behind the language.

Dian is a Senior Software Developer in Acronis Search Engines team.
