Go is a natural fit for building web applications and services. Over the last few years the Go community has been busy creating better tools for web development in Go. Because of this surge in web frameworks, many questions have come to light:

  • Which web framework should I use?
  • Should I even use a framework?
  • What the heck is a framework?

In this talk I will attempt to answer these questions by reflection on one of my own projects, Martini, and how my open source contributions changed from building frameworks to building smaller, more idiomatic libraries.
