Eleni Fragkiadaki - Goroutines and Thread Safe Data Structures

Goroutines and Thread Safe Data Structures

Goroutines are a powerful tool that can be used to make code run faster. But is using them always safe or can they create hard to find, hard to reproduce race conditions? In this talk we cover goroutines, wait groups and locks in order to create thread safe data structures for our applications.
