Ann Arbor gophers is for all Go programmers - from those using it in industry to those who haven't even had time to play with the Go playground yet.

My initial goal of this meetup is to simply help people understand how Go can help them - for personal projects and for production systems. It provides amazing speedups in development time, testing time, startup time and simply production running time.

I am also open to expanding the goals of this Meetup. I am more than happy to help people get started with Go, to point them towards wonderful Go resources and to just help people love Go as much as it should be loved!

You should join this Meetup if you've heard about Go and are wondering if it might be useful in production, if you've started using it in production and are wondering about things that might make life easier, if you're considering using it for your home LAN, scripts etc or if you're just plain interested as to why someone would have the audacity to name a programming language Go since it makes it so hard to google.

Come join us!
