    https://roadmap.sh/ is a good source for that

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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
