Advanced Go Concurrency Patterns

Andrew Gerrand
23 May 2013

At Google I/O a year ago Rob Pike presented Go Concurrency Patterns, an introduction to Go’s concurrency model. Last week, at I/O 2013, Go team member Sameer Ajmani continued the story with Advanced Go Concurrency Patterns, an in-depth look at a real concurrent programming problem. The talk shows how to detect and avoid deadlocks and race conditions, and demonstrates the implementation of deadlines, cancellation, and more. For those who want to take their Go programming to the next level, this is a must-see.

The slides are available here (use the left and right arrows to navigate).

The slides were produced with the present tool, and the runnable code snippets are powered by the Go Playground. The source code for this talk is in the go.talks sub-repository.
