Dan Worth: Go for Pythonistas

Dan (@djworth) is a long time Python developer who is falling in love with Go. Dan currently works as a Python developer at DramaFever.

This talk is designed to be an introduction to the Go programming language ( from a Python programmer's perspective.

Some of the things we'll cover are listed below in no particular order:

* What you need to develop Go programs
* Installing and using packages
* Compiling Go programs
* Common Data Structures (and their Python equivalents)
* Go program structure
* Unit Testing
* Deployment
* Common gotchas going from Python to Go

With all of the items listed above I will do my best to compare them to Python.
