  • GitHub repo bolt

    After few weeks of active practice try to build some app with an embedded database like BadgerDB or Bolt, cover it with tests. Start looking into open source projects that you are interested in, try to participate in them.

  • GitHub repo zerolog

    Zero Allocation JSON Logger

    Logging is another place where the standard library doesn't work very well. I'd have a hard time building quickly without Zerolog.

  • GitHub repo GORM

    The fantastic ORM library for Golang, aims to be developer friendly

    gorm's performance I believe is fairly impressive at this point. While it was bad at first, they put a lot of effort in the v2 release to make it great. Check out: https://github.com/go-gorm/gorm/issues/3055

  • GitHub repo moq

    Interface mocking tool for go generate

    I happen to use this https://github.com/matryer/moq because it more or less makes the mock I would handwrite
