golang 3rd party libs let me down

Posted at — Mar 8, 2012

[UPDATE 2012-03-28] Google released version 1.I’m working on a presentation project and one of the demo apps is a pub/sub that I need for a VOIP customer.Currently the app is written in php. It’s executed when each phone call completes. And it currently writes directly to a log file. Both attributes are bad which I was hoping my demo app would correct. And while I’ve considered C I’d rather not for the moment.golang has a fast and functional API and language. The target executable is statically linked and a reasonable size. My concern is that the beanstalkd and redis libs are old. So before I pushed my first message I’ve abandoned golang for lua.
