In addition to my technical blog I've written in print as well.

Go in Practice

Go in Practice is a cookbook style book of patterns for Go development. It has over 70 techniques covering a wide variety of topics from microservices and web services to debugging and error handling.

Most of the chapters contain topic introductions followed by a series of recipe like techniques. Each technique shares a recipe for solving a problem with a discussion on the problem and solution.
