Go: code that grows with grace

After two *introductions* to the Go language here's a chance to have a more in-depth look at it!

Andrew Gerrand (**) will talk about one of Go's key design goals: code adaptability and how the language makes it easy to take a simple design and build upon it in a clean and natural way.

In his talk he will describe a simple “chat roulette” server that matches pairs of incoming TCP connections, and then use Go’s concurrency mechanisms, interfaces, and standard library to extend it with a web interface and other features.  Although the function of the program changes dramatically, the inherent flexibility of Go allows the original design to remain intact as it grows.

(**) Andrew works for Google and is a Go core team member, https://twitter.com/enneff

    Andrew really knows his stuff!! Clear examples and some entertaining demos and live coding exercises help drive the message home :)

    Would anybody have a problem if we moved this meetup to 01-Nov-2012? There's a couple of folks who'd like to attend but cannot do so on Wednesday..
