Making good progress on Go implementation of the CoffeeOutside bot. I don’t know how much of it I can pin on Go being a decent language (it is) and that the logic for the bot is now pretty sound, but either way this should make for an easier experience.

I thought of a neat little metaphor while walking to the library today. If an IT group was a hockey team, development would be offense, QA defense, and ops the goalies. Development is generally thinking about features, QA looks to stop problems, and ops is a job you kind of have to be a little crazy to do ;-)
