A user group to meet and discuss the Go programming language (golang). Meetups are typically held on third Thursdays at 7. Follow us on Twitter @atxgolang and join our chat room #atxgolang on Freenode.
The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
