Johan Brandhorst


Johan grew up and studied in Sweden but has worked in United Kingdom as a programmer since 2012 at both multi-national companies and small startups. He's the maintainer of many big open source projects, such as the grpc-gateway and grpc-web. Having started with C/C++, he now spends his time working almost exclusively with Go, presenting at conferences around the world on topics as diverse as WebAssembly and writing REST services with gRPC.

Writing REST Services for the gRPC-curious

Ever wished you could use gRPC for your new service instead of tired old JSON/REST? I will introduce and demo the gRPC-Gateway, which makes it possible to expose a JSON/REST interface while maintaining many of the benefits of using gRPC. It can even be used with browser clients!
