Zero downtime API in Golang

Recently I have encountered a task, where I needed to develop an API, that has maximum uptime during upgrading binaries. I found two usable solutions, that I would like to share with you. I will try to sum up everything so it can serve as some basepoint for everyone interested in this topic. Writing a blog post about this problem also helps me so I can come back later and quickly read what I have discovered to prevent researching everything from scratch.

All code is hosted on GitHub. Feel free to report any issue or ask any questions, I hope that it was exciting for you as well as it was for me. You can follow me on my Twitter, where we can discuss everything.
