This might be too niche a question, but are there open source projects that use Go and seem accessible to beginners?


@audrey I wrote my first practical Go as a provider for Terraform.

Terraform Core is a bit complex for beginners, but the provider plugins are mostly approachable - assuming this isn’t your first language.

Go Modules make it a lot easier to start a project from scratch. I also find that some older projects hard to jump in and build locally, because of the way Go source management worked pre-modules. The tooling eco system got pretty fragmented.

@audrey The statically-compiled output lends itself well to tool-making if you just want to scratch your own itch for something.

A friend nearby made a little tool for tracking what he’s working on so he has something to past into slack for an update at the end of the day.
