Using GitHub Actions to summarise your Go tests

GitHub recently posted about a new GitHub Action that can be used to summarise your test results. The action is called test-summary/action, available at github.com/test-summary/action. There are several examples on how to use the action at github.com/test-summary/examples. However, there were no examples on how to use this with Go. I contributed a pull request which showed how to achieve this. In this post, I will show how to use the action with Go.

Go Pointers - Using the & and * operators

I’ll be transparent. The purpose of this post is to help with my own understanding of the Go & and * operators. It’s going to be a very short post, and I’m going to try to explain the concepts in a way that I can understand. I’ve used these operators in C previously, but whenever I’m using them - I always end up having to remember the syntax / which operator is which / what they do. For whatever reason, it doesn’t always come intuitively to me.

Set up your Go development environment with Visual Studio Code and Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

Over the past few weeks, I have been working on a new set of pet projects. I’ve wanted to learn Go for a while, so I thought this could be a great opportunity to get hands on and try it out. It’s fair to say that my development environment was ‘functional’, but I wanted to revisit it to make sure that I could get the best out of it. In this blog post, I’m going to walkthrough the process of setting up Go on my machine, and then the experience of using Visual Studio Code and Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) with Ubuntu.
