The Story Of $GOPATH

The Story Of $GOPATH

Presented as a lightning talk at GopherConIndia 2017.

New programmers are often frustrated when they encounter $GOPATH while setting up their development environment. $GOPATH also establishes constraints over dependency management.

I talked about how GOPATH came along and what were people's reactions on it. I also talked about some of the proposals that have been in discussion to tackle this problem.
