What do you get when you get a bunch of Go developers in a room?
The first GoSF meetup!
On Wed, April 18th, two top Go developers will show code and explain some of the why behind what they're doing.
Brad Fitzpatrick and Blake Mizerany have both built high-performance systems using Go. They'll use code examples to point out key aspects of the language and explain how Go plays into their algorithms and approaches.
- Brad Fitzpatrick, Google Go Team
- Blake Mizerany, Heroku

About the Speakers
Brad Fitzpatrick is on the Go Team at Google. He's been at Google since 2007 working on Social Graph API, PubSubHubbub, WebFinger, Android, and more. Prior to that he founded Danga, created LiveJournal, authored memcached and did a load of stuff at SixApart (OpenID, djabberd, ....) Why Go: "It's refreshingly simple and productive. Makes me giddy about writing code again after years of hating the major trade-offs between different languages."
