We have been playing around with some new languages here and have really taking a liking to the new GoLang project from Google. We have enjoyed the philosophy behind the project, the expertise and thought that went into ts development as well as the ease of implementation and ability to perform and scale. As a new language (and one that tries its best to have as little stuffed into it as possible) GoLang is not yet packaged with a testing framework. Since we love our testing and code coverage sooooo much we had to take some cycles to get to know if/how we can get our testing pipeline working to the level of our other projects. Here Isaac Mosquera goes over what he learned while digging into GoLang testing systems.
