    This looks pretty awesome!

    I'd love to see an example using websockets. I've used Go for websockets in the past but find the boilerplate-to-custom code ratio isn't great.

    Knowing Go has a solid webrtc library (, another cool feature would be webrtc support. Tons you can build with that!
