Abstract

Baker is a Go library, but it's also a story. A story about programming, friendship, and having fun doing things the best you can, squeezing the code down to the last loop and byte.

Giovanni and Valentino met years ago, within the GCC and Python communities, before the first PyCon Italia. They rarely worked together, until the collaboration between the two companies of which they are now CTOs, respectively Develer and NextRoll, was born.

Baker is the fruit of this experiment, it's a Go library for manipulating big-data streams, but it's also a case study for anyone who has a complex infrastructure that's creaking somewhere and is looking for a way to fix things without breaking everything.
