There has been a lot of talk about generics lately in the Go community which as lead to me thinking about them a lot lately. In thinking about generics, my mind instinctively wandered to code generation because that has been my go-to tool when I do need something resembling a generic. In fact, I have written about using code generation to get by without generics in Go in the past.
Learn how to use code generation to create type-safe code (like a Queue or LinkedList) without having to rewrite the same thing over and over again.
