Go implementation for Flatdata

Once in the past, routing team at HERE Technologies was in the situation when routing backend was in danger of failing SLA. It’s triggered a massive work to improve its performance. As a side effect of this work, was born: zero-copy memory-mapped data storage.
This talk will be about sharing an experience of creation of Go implementation for Flatdata: zero-copy memory-mapped data storage.
We will compare Go implementation with implementations for other languages. I will show in which cases Go has advantages compared to other languages and opposite cases (hi, generics!). We will look also at the performance aspect of different implementations.
