Golang concurrent slice append

var wg sync.WaitGroup
MySlice = make([]*MyStruct)
for _, param := range params {
    wg.Add(1)
    go func(param string) {
        defer wg.Done()
        OneOfMyStructs := getMyStruct(param)
        MySlice = append(MySlice, &OneOfMyStructs)
    }(param)
}
wg.Wait()

I guess you would need to use go channels for concurrency-safety. Can anyone contribute with an example?

There is nothing wrong with guarding the MySlice = append(MySlice, &OneOfMyStructs) with a sync.Mutex. But of course you can have a result channel with buffer size len(params) all goroutines send their answers and once your work is finished you collect from this result channel.

If your params has a fixed size:

MySlice = make([]*MyStruct, len(params))
for i, param := range params {
    wg.Add(1)
    go func(i int, param string) {
         defer wg.Done()
         OneOfMyStructs := getMyStruct(param)
         MySlice[i] = &OneOfMyStructs
     }(i, param)
}

As all goroutines write to different memory this isn’t racy.
