i’m writing a go framework!

Hello folks! While working at Red Hat I had the awesome opportunity to brush up my Go skills on a daily basis again, and I stumbled across a lot of interesting technical problems. One of these problems struck my attention so much that I started playing with it on my free time and I came up with ez. This is a pet project, but I wanted to let people know I’m on it in case its going to be useful for someone else and/or if you wanna get involved and contribute!

Clean Code in Go - Are short variable names a good practice?

Hi. I spoke about Go and Clean Code in a couple of meetups and at the last Gophercon Brasil in 2019 (slides here, in Portuguese) and I am now breaking the presentation in a series of posts, starting with this one, to explain what kind code is considered clean in Go. The motivation behind this is to share a little after years of writing Go code on what kind of practices are considered good / bad.
