5 years ago we set started the adoption of the Go programming language at AOE. 3 years ago we open sourced Flamingo, our web framework, created to enable us to build fast and scalable applications. Now, looking back, it was quite a ride raising a flock of small Flamingo’s to form a stable basis for our daily work.
But first, why even open source work we have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours on, for free? At AOE, we do not believe in gatekeeping, sharing our code enables us to join an open dialogue with everyone interested in building, growing and learning on a mutual code base.
This evolution was nothing we could predict, but we are grateful for all the learnings, all the contributions from the outside and the chance to let our Flamingo grow wings. Now we set out to fly even higher, focusing on making Flamingo accessible and lowering all entry barriers, so you can start right away with a free choice of your tech stack, be it gRPC, GraphQL, Rest, and include and connect any framework you’ve learned to love in the past.
After all, this is about Open Source, and we love Open Source.
