How has the recent turmoil within the OpenAI offices changed your plans to use GPT in a business process or product in 2024?
Increased uncertainty means we are more likely to evaluate alternative AI chatbots and LLMs.
No change in plans, though we will keep an eye on the situation.
With Sam Altman back in charge, we are more likely to go all-in with GPT and LLMs.

How Go Is Effective For Sysadmins

Editor’s Note: A look at Go from a toolsmithing perspective. — AW

There are a few things I need to get done. A primary task is to write a profile about Go, the Google led programming language. Well, why not in the meantime narrate what I am seeing pop up in my Twitter feed about Go and post it here? That’s what I am going to do and hopefully it will lead to a longer, more in-depth post about Go and what I learned at the most excellent Gophercon, the first ever Go conference.

I kept looking for examples of the relveance of Go at the conference but the flow of great material keeps coming with all the speaker talks that are getting posted. One of the latest is from New Relic’s Kelsey Hightower (a fellow Portlander!), who discused the advantages of Go for systems administrators. His talk is about Go from a toolsmithing point of view and deploying applications. It’s a fresh and oiccasionally humorous story about how he learned Go and CoreOs, the new Linux distribution for massive server deployments.

Overview of what he said as pulled from the blog post:

  • How Hightower leveraged the Go standard library for everyday system administration tasks
  • The way practical use of goroutines and channels is used in system utilities and scripts
  • Best practices

Watch the video — it’s worth the 23 minutes.
