Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Composing generic data structures in go
3 projects | dev.to | 30 Nov 2021
Recently a colleague, Nathan, reflecting on CockroachDB, remarked (paraphrased from memory) that the key data structure is the interval btree. The story of Nathan’s addition of the first interval btree to cockroach and the power of copy-on-write data structures is worthy of its own blog post for another day. It’s Nathan’s hand-specialization of that data structure that provided the basis (and tests) for the generalization I’ll be presenting here. The reason for this specialization was as much for the performance wins of avoiding excessive allocations, pointer chasing, and cost of type assertions when using interface boxing.
Stacked changes: how FB and Google engineers stay unblocked and ship faster
12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Nov 2021
I'm surprised Reviewable hasn't come up in this discussion. It does a great job of allowing stacked code reviews and even handles rebases nicely; the reviewer sees the diff between commit #1 and commit #1' (prime = after rebase).
CockroachDB has been using it since very early in the project.

And even if you did want to run your database on a bunch of untrusted machines, a blockchain, being a linked list, is not a particularly efficient implementation. Its size increases linearly with the number of operations, which, for any rapid-fire application such as banking, means you have a tremendously inefficient marginal computational and storage cost per operation. You’d be considerably better off running something like Cockroach, or FoundationDB, or more ‘out-there’ offerings like Hypercore.

Design to Duty: How we make architecture decisions at Adyen
1 project | dev.to | 28 Jul 2021
As you now know, we do not want to achieve this by restricting payments of some merchants to certain machines, as this would mean the machines are no longer linearly scalable. The information needs to be available locally, so we eventually decided on integrating Cockroach, a distributed database, with our PALs.

What is Cost-based Optimization?

In CockroachDB, the cost is an abstract 64-bit floating-point scalar value.
#30DaysofAppwrite : Appwrite’s building blocks
3 projects | dev.to | 3 May 2021
Appwrite uses MariaDB as the default database for project collections, documents, and all other metadata. Appwrite is agnostic to the database you use under the hood and support for more databases like Postgres, CockroachDB, MySQL and MongoDB is currently under active development! 😊
I am building a Serverless version of Redis - written in Rust
7 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 2 May 2021
For me, if you look back to when Redis has been designed - 11 years ago, it was before the Cloud was a thing. Since then, you have Cloud alternatives that are mostly proprietary. The idea of RedisLess is not competing against a product that is existing for 11 years but showing a new path of how we can build a system on top of an existing one. You can see RedisLess as experimentation. How to build Cloud-native databases by taking advantage of existing solutions? TiDB, Yugabyte, CockroachDB are great examples of being MySQL wire protocol compatible and providing a Cloud way of managing data.

Google's new related search box optimizes for the wrong metric
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Nov 2021
Community-run blacklists for plugins like uBlock Origin are comprehensive and well-maintained
I think that blacklists are opposite to search in a sense. Naive search is an easy target for those who try to game its results in an endless arms war. Ads and annoyance listings are not, because those who want to game it would a) delete the specific rules and get catched by feedback, b) add rules to downplay the opponents and also get reported. In a search, there is hard to say who played low, because everyone will do that.
I think “we” should resurrect directories instead of a search, because it already presented itself as nonsense in a long run for too many times.
A directory is a categorized collection of links with a meaningful description (opposed to in-site bs marketing claims which these sites have to do no matter what) and few curated comments. E.g. awesome lists out there:
… think awesome cars, awesome appliances, awesome socks, awesome instruments, awesome food etc. Every area has some interned knowledge which waits for a platform to post it on. There will be ads push force just like with search, but at least it would be controlled by community, not by faceless moremoney entity. The difference with search is that search is automated and thus much more vulnerable to ranking tricks. You can then run very naive search over this curated data and get good results.
Also it would shift trust from sites (which you want to find out to trust or not in the first place) to people who pull-request links into a directory. You never know which of SERP results made by whom. In a directory, you can see who posted what and what their rating or age of participation is. This is inevitable because in a modern world trust can only be huilt with time to a person, and there is no good will except of someone real who got tired of the shit so much that they are ready to go to lengths to explain/advise/help others and get it back eventually (that’s the core of foss idea). No corp can align with what we want anymore, because their competition is always better at money, and at SERP. there is simply no other way, in my view.

Migrating from PHP to Go

bring your own tools - this is where you select your libraries and then wire them together manually. Most libraries play very well with other libraries https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go -- so it can be easier than in other languages. This approach is very common.26 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 30 Sep 2021

Having a hard time learning golang
1 project | reddit.com/r/golang | 19 Aug 2021
As mentioned by others, I would suggest starting with Go tour and try to digest as much as you can from it. Once you feel you are ready, take a peek into the Awesome Go github repo https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go. There you can find a lot of examples of how to write and organize your code.

What's great is there are really great patterns to follow out there on github (both code patterns https://github.com/tmrts/go-patterns and examples https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go https://github.com/go-kit/kit and for the app itself, https://github.com/golang-standards/project-layout )... and for me a really naggy mentor who insists everything be "idiomatic go"
