GopherCon 2019 - Design Command-Line Tools People Love

Presenter: Carolyn Van Slyck Liveblogger: Jennifer Davis This post was a contribution to the liveblog for GopherCon 2019.

Often a team’s engineering efforts are spent on the backend, while the cli doesn’t receive the same level of attention. This can result in hard-to-test tools and dumping maintenance of them to whoever most recently joined the team.
