I'm a software engineer for ShareMySpace.com. I currently work with Rails, CoffeeScript, and Sass. I enjoy trying new things, and Go is certainly one of them. I started using it soon after the 1.0 release, but have kept up with it from the beginning!
Right now I've only used it to mess around. I made a simple todo list middleware app to see how easy it'd be to work with MongoDB and make a RESTful service (It is easy!). I also made a recipe scraper that gets all recipes from allrecipies.com. Go isn't completely ideal for web scraping, but it was really just to try out Go channels. Setting up n number of processes to scrape 68k recipes was quite easy and fun!
Welcome to the group, Jason! Hope you will join us on the August 16th, as we come together intending to enjoy great local food and bring information back to our own circles of fun and influence. This Menu for the Future idea has lots of room for creative, food centered gatherings and connecting with great folks from all walks of life. Looking forward to meeting you in person. Anaiis
