Presentation: "How Go is making us faster"

Time: Tuesday 15:00 - 15:50 / Location: Promenade Ballroom A

In a web-performance world, things have to go fast. In less than the blink
of an eye, our digital marketing systems host real-time auctions and serve
ads across the world to the tune of 2.3 million queries per second. And we
are building the next generation of these real-time, high performance
systems on Go. In this talk, we’ll dive deep into how MediaMath is using
Go to handle hundreds of thousands of requests per second on minimal
footprint. We’ll cover why we chose Go for our next-generation systems,
how we are maximizing Go’s performance, and why we think Go is a
game-changer for building services. We’ll take a look at some of the
things we’ve encountered with Go’s channel performance, how to minimize
the effects of garbage collection, the effect of GOMAXPROCs, and more.
