Summary
Chris Roche and Christopher Burnett discuss how they extended the Protocol Buffer (PB) IDL to create unified APIs and data models. From validation logic to automatic logging and statistics, PBs allows them to speed up development across Go, Python, and PHP stacks. They also show how they leverage the Envoy proxy to transparently upgrade HTTP/1.1 services to speak gRPC on the wire.
