    Standard Go Project Layout

  • GitHub repo bolt

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo buntdb

    BuntDB is an embeddable, in-memory key/value database for Go with custom indexing and geospatial support

    Will just drop it here, there are a lot of challenges of different complexity level A lot of them for Golang also, nice way to learn language by solving problems

  • GitHub repo gdlv

    GUI frontend for Delve
