This summer I got the opportunity to be able to work on an open source project “aws-nuke” ((link)[https://github.com/rebuy-de/aws-nuke]). This was the push I needed to start learning and falling in love with Golang. From the walrus operator to goroutines, I have loved every second of learning this language.
As an avid IRC user (IRC is kinda dead, but Notre Dame has an active IRC community) I knew one of my first solo projects with Golang should be a client.
I decided to utilize the library (go-cui)[github.com/awesome-gocui/gocui] to handle the gui, as it would abstract a level of difficulty. I decided to go with a terminal ui because I really appreciate the aesthetic of console applications.
I had a lot of growing pains switching from a summer of python at my internship to working in Golang.
I learned a lot about structs and better ways to arrange Go code.
This is still slightly WIP, but here is the repo!
