    Project mention: Top CNCF Projects to look out for in 2023 | dev.to | 2023-01-23

    Istio is an Orchestration & Management / Service Mesh project. With a service mesh, traffic between services is handled at a platform level. This way, reliability, observability, and security features can be tackled here and provided uniformly across all services, instead of being delegated to developers to include in their code. Istio has become the second Incubating CNCF project with the most stars and with most contributors this year.

    Project mention: Ask HN: What are some examples of cloud lock-in? | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-12-05

    Had similar goals. Started by writing Go interfaces for it with Go Micro - https://go-micro.dev then opted for the platform service model as you mentioned with Micro - https://micro.dev

    I think whether it's Dapr, Micro or something else, the platform service model with well defined interfaces is the way to go. I don't think a lot of people get this yet so it's still going to be a few years before it takes off.

    Project mention: GO as Backend for Flutter app | reddit.com/r/FlutterDev | 2023-01-03

    I use Go for my projects. For REST communication I use the https://goa.design/ project - it generates everything needed for golang. It also generates swagger files. And then for flutter I use the https://pub.dev/packages/swagger\_dart\_code\_generator project to generate the library for flutter. It's not completely painless but for larger projects it's better than doing everything manually. For newer projects and when possible I use GraphQL.
