Orlando Golang Monthly Meetup – Getting started with gRPC and Go – With Vladimir Vivien
June 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
While REST, JSON over HTTP 1.1, is ubiquitous, it is a simple text-based protocol that was not designed to handle the demands of modern cloud-native service architectures. The gRPC project, originated from work at Google, is intended to continue where JSON stopped. It is a universal RPC protocol that uses binary payload over HTTP 2.0 for creating efficient, strongly typed, idiomatic and expressive service APIs using many languages.
In this session, speaker Vladimir Vivien explores the use of gRPC with the Go programming language. The session starts with the definition of a service using gRPC’s interface definition language (IDL). It continues on to create a working service while demonstrating the different gRPC API styles including uni-directional, bi-directional and streaming.
