Age: 29

I have a history in embedded software with C and C++, but now work on web services at Iron.io using Go on the server side and every language possible on the client side.

I love programming languages and can find something to like just about anywhere. I wish I had more time to spend learning about compilers.

comment table of functions vs switch in golang
For sufficiently large switches, it's not faster. Smaller switches can be faster because they're better able to take advantage of the CPU's branch predictor and code cache.

comment Golang Mgo pacing
It's hard to make a recommendation without knowing anything about the application in question, but PostgreSQL is often a good default choice.
