Go modules are in experimental phase since Go 1.11 (August 2018). There is a long history, quite some theory and a few tooling changes related to versioning and dependency management in Go. At Golang and Cloud Native Meetup Leipzig #3 highlighted a bit of the background and live coded some examples.
