We recently held an event at our office to demo Revel, a web framework for the language Go. Created by Yext Software Engineer, Rob Figueiredo, Revel is a high productivity web framework that makes Go easier to use and faster to build web applications on.
Revel provides routing, parameter parsing, validation, session/flash, templating, caching, job running, a testing framework, and even internationalization. And it was recently benchmarked to serve three to ten times as many requests as Rails across a variety of loads. No small feat.
Rob demoed to Yexters, friends, and members of the community before some food, drinks and foosball. Check out some pictures from the event:
