This workshop is for Go developers who want to get started with gRPC. We assume you have working knowledge of Go.
gRPC is a remote procedure call (RPC) framework from Google which uses Protocol Buffers as a serialization format and HTTP2 as the transport medium. By using these two well established technologies, you gain access to a lot of knowledge and tooling that’s already available.
In this workshop, we will learn how we can use these technologies to efficiently connect internal services and pass information between them.
