We wanted to do something different to try new technologies,
otherwise we get bored. Curious about Go, we gave it a shot.
I used holidays to read the Effective Go book among others, very nice to see what has Go inside and start with it.
I used the Revel web framework to start with a thin layer and build from it.
For the frontend we are just using jQuery and Ducksboard's Gridster.
The project is still in heavy development and solves a problem of mine, I want to have a small place where I could see the highlights of my daily life without having to browse different services(birthdays, agenda, Taikoa stuff...).
Dashpersonal is released in Github, we will have a demo soon!
