  • net/http extension to exchange structs

    I would suggest checking out something like revive to improve the code. For instance you use an errors.New(fmt.Sprintf(... when you can just use fmt.Errorf(... to simplify it. I am not saying obey everything but there are some good lints included that can even catch bugs (for instance misusing errors.Is or errors.As or general equality).

  • Change Blogging my first Hacktoberfest (2021)
    2 projects | | 29 Oct 2021
    The day after, I talked about the Hacktoberfest to Salvador (architect colleague and my technical/career unofficial mentor). He is known for contributing to revive a Golang linter. We decided that I could contribute by solving these 3 issues (2 new rules and add a docker image to the release). Since this moment, I have been coding every available hour I had. It felt so reviving to spend time coding on new projects, rewarding to solve issues for people actually using the tool. Here are all my contributions.

    2 projects | | 29 May 2021
