More on validating with Go

A few days ago I posted about a new Go package called validator that we initially developed for our own internal use at but what fun is internal stuff, right? So we opensourced it.

Then Matthew Holt pointed me to an ongoing discussion
on validation happening on martini-contrib’s github. By the way, if you don’t know martini yet, go rectify that right now.

And today I learned about check, which takes a completely different
approach to data validation than the one we took, which by the way is totally fine and you should check it out.

Good to know we were not the only ones with the problem. Although I’m happy with how our package turned out, I kind of wish
I had found these other guys earlier. Could have shared some code or just ideas.
