April Go Sydney Meetup

The April Go Sydney meetup will be held on the 10th of April at 6pm. This time we'll be trying something a little different and would like to invite members of Go community to give a series of lightning talks.

We have three talks on the agenda are:

  • Gary Miller and Luke Leslie Swithenbank will be talking about using Go for FPGA programming.
  • Jamie Willkinson will be talking about emtail, a tool for extracting metrics out of log files in realtime.
  • Dave Cheney will be talking about how Go builds itself, GOROOT and GOPATH.
  • Andrew Gerrand will be talking about the upcoming release of Go 1.1.
  • ... and we may have another surprise speaker.

Additionally there will be eating, drinking, networking, questioning, and answering.

As always a big thanks to Google for providing food and refreshments.

    Would it be possible to get a link to Bill Neubauer's slides? He had it included on the footer, but I neglected to record the URL at the time.

    Anyone got a link to those 1.1 benchmarks? I think Andrew mentioned that Dave made them?

    The topics of all the talks were interesting.

    We're all at the meeting because we're interested in Go - it would be nice if the speakers gave more detailed explanations.

      I wish I was better prepared for what to expect. I'll improve for next time :)

      It would also be helpful for speakers to briefly introduce themselves and their involvement/experience with Go (for example, golang committer vs end user).

    If I had been nearer to completing my golang project I would have given a talk... Hopefully there'll be another meet up soon :).

    I will also be talking about what's new in Go 1.1 (due to be released later this month), and we may have another surprise speaker.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
