Do you know of any recent tutorials on writing web applications in Golang? I saw a slideshow from two years ago, but the content seemed to be fairly abstract for a framework.

It really depends on your needs and the type of application you're making. For example my applications, apart serving a few static html, css and js files, just answer to JSON or JSONP queries. That can be done in a dozen lines of code, all the remaining code will be related to your application logic.

So you just need to look at the net/http API, and at a few code samples. I cannot find the the old golang wiki codelab sample (has it gone away with Go1 ?), so here's an example of a JSONP server that you can reduce to a few lines if you remove the specific application logic and the profiling hook : https://github.com/Canop/braldop/blob/master/go/src/braldops...

EDIT : I found an example on the golang site. If you're not interested in JSON, it will be more suited to your need : http://golang.org/doc/effective_go.html#web_server
