The little known team that keeps Go going
Ever wonder how new features get added to the
go command? Or where tools like
gopls come from? Well, there’s an open team that handles just those things.
Just like the programming language itself, many of the tools that Go engineers use everyday are discussed and developed in the open. In this episode we’ll talk about this team, how it started, where it’s going, and how you can get involved.
