Introducing Gizmo - The New York Times

All the news that's fit to serve -- check the full post for details about how the NYT is building microservices in Go

"At The New York Times, our development teams have been adopting the Go programming language over the last three years to build better back-end services. In the past I’ve written about using Go for Elastic MapReduce streaming. I’ve also talked about using Go at GothamGo for news analysis and to improve our email and alert systems at the Golang NYC Meetup. We use Go for a wide variety of tasks, but the most common use throughout the company is for building JSON APIs.

When we first began building APIs with Go, we didn’t use any frameworks or shared interfaces. This meant that they varied from team to team and project to project with regard to structure, naming conventions and third-party tools. As we started building more and more APIs, the pains of microservices started to become apparent."
