Go Drinkup : Aftercon

Go Drinkup : Aftercon

Hosted by Iron.io, Docker.io, CoreOS, SourceGraph, and Airbrake.

Join other Gophers for a Gophercon debrief and drinks! 

Discuss tech topics with fellow attendees or catch up on all the awesome stuff you missed all around a couple kegs, chips and guac, and other fine things.

About the Hosts

Iron.io is the maker of IronMQ, a highly available message queue, and IronWorker, an elastic task queue/worker service. Iron.io's services are designed for doing things asynchronously and operating at scale. (www.iron.io

Docker, Inc., the company behind Docker. Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more. (www.docker.io)

CoreOS is a new Linux distribution that has been rearchitected to provide features needed to run modern infrastructure stacks. The strategies and architectures that influence CoreOS allow companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to run their services at scale with high resilience. (www.coreos.com)

Sourcegraph is reinventing code search for the modern programmer. Find the code you need quickly, see anywhere in the open-source world that a function or library is used, and discover other like-minded programmers. Start using it now for Go and several other languages at Sourcegraph.com.

Airbrake collects and processes 600 million errors a month in GoLang, the leading error tracking system. 

About the Location

Heavybit Industries (@heavybit) is a program and industry group for early stage businesses making developer-facing products.

    I started writing a "Procedural Death Jam" MMO game engine in Go with a Javascript front end. http://raidsphere.com

    (Actually started in Clojure but just ported to Go.) I'm not done stress testing it yet, but I had 124 clients connected to it, and it was only showing 5% load, so I'm hoping that means it should be able to have upwards of 1000 clients.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone! I'm one of the guys working on Nitrous.IO, we have large parts of our codebase in Go and excited to be part of the Go community.

    Looking forward to meeting people and hearing feedback from Gophercon!

    I'm going to be that guy who is looking to hire folks, but please don't hold it against me.

    I was at an AWS infrastructure meetup yesterday, and although the meetup topic had nothing to do with Go directly, 4 out 5 projects mentioned were using Go.

    Its pretty crazy how much things have changed since just 12 months ago. Last January I was at a similar AWS meeting and nobody was talking about Go.

    Looking forward to meeting up with everyone, both folks we met at the conference and people who weren't able to make it.

    FYI, Quinn and I had a liveblog going of conference proceedings. We tried our best to make it as detailed and informative as possible!

    It's up at http://gophercon.sourcegraph.com/. Potentially easier to browse: http://gophercon.sourcegraph.com/archive
