Live order tracking on Golang, open sourced by RoseRocket

This is a guest post by Alex Luksidadi, CTO and co-founder of RoseRocket, a Y Combinator backed transportation management system for trucking.

Link previews are obtained by capturing a screenshot of our dashboard view for the live event. In this post, we take a peek under the hood to see what powers these screenshots and how you can setup a service to do the same. Continue reading
