Your first Golang app server on Bluemix (video)

Share this post:

This is a follow-up on a previous post that talked about building a Golang app server in Bluemix.

Go is a language that has been mostly developed and maintained by Google, but recently a lot of other companies have been adopting it as well. If you are using Bluemix, which is built on Cloud Foundry, you are using Go and you probably didn’t even know it. A lot of Cloud Foundry that was previously in Ruby is being rewritten in Go. including the CLI.

Watch this video to learn how to deploy your own app.
