    Design-based APIs and microservices in Go

    Go also makes more sense as you head towards microservices, since you can version the "interface" and let the compiler tell you if the code is compatiable. (Look into Goa - it cleanly breaks out "API" vs "implementation code" and lets you generate all the muck to hook it up to the network via HTTP, gRPC, or queuing, etc.)

  • Tcl-bounties

    Bounty program for improvements to Tcl and certain Tcl packages

    Just looked at their GitHub and saw https://github.com/flightaware/Tcl-bounties so yep. Guess they’re definitely invested in it. Feels similar to booking.com which is all or mainly Perl. They even set up a team dedicated to find micro-optimisations in perl because even a 1% increase in throughput could save them money.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
