How Go is making us faster

A session at GOTO Chicago 2015

Tuesday 12th May, 2015

3:00pm to 3:50pm (CST)

In a web-performance world, things have to go fast. In less than the blink of an eye, our digital marketing systems host real-time auctions and serve ads across the world to the tune of 2.3 million queries per second. And we are building the next generation of these real-time, high performance systems on Go. In this talk, we’ll dive deep into how MediaMath is using Go to handle hundreds of thousands of requests per second on minimal footprint. We’ll cover why we chose Go for our next-generation systems, how we are maximizing Go’s performance, and why we think Go is a game-changer for building services. We’ll take a look at some of the things we’ve encountered with Go’s channel performance, how to minimize the effects of garbage collection, the effect of GOMAXPROCs, and more.
