Google Go

With Elazar Leibovich

Abstract: This talk will shortly present the main new ideas in the Go programming language (which is channels/CSP/actors like concurrency, and implicit interfaces). We will demonstrate two examples how parallel programs can express some ideas much more clearly than the alternatives approaches. Writing a lexer, in a concurrent paradigm, is easier even if your code will run in a single thread. Calculating power series is known to be an exhaustive tasks, however with Go's channels semantics it becomes surprisingly more pleasant. This talk is based on two lectures by Rob Pike about Google Go and related ideas.

    Hey All,
    Here's a hebrew translation by myself for the Go Tour Playground. A great starting point for everyone coming from a different programming language interested in learning Go.

    the lecture missed some "entry point" explanation about golang.
    Going from "Hello World" to relatively complex examples was too fast for me,
    But still, the lecture was interesting and useful, 10x

    the topic was very interesting. but the lecture was not planned enough - skipped may slides in the ppt. and missing basic at the beggining - until asked by the audience in the middle of the time.

    Boring and unorganized lecture made this meetup unbearable.
    Despite that, the information passed was quite interesting, if only it was presented in a better way.
    I'm sorry to say this is the first meetup I've attended that I've left in the middle, and I've seen many other people do the same.

    יש תחבורה ציבורית בערב יום הזיכרון נכון? או שזה יום קצר לכל דבר?
