Hey Gophers,

Hope this mail find you all well.
Our next meetup will take place on Tuesday, Feb 26 at 7:00 PM at BCA College Leof. Alexandras 205, with 2 excellent talks from Spiros Gerokostas and Agis Anastasopoulos.

We would like to thank our two new sponsors Code.Hub (https://www.codehub.gr/) for providing the room at BCA and Tradeline (https://www.tradeline.io/) for the food and drinks. We will have the opportunity to meet them and tell us a few words between talks in the meetup.

About the talks and our speakers:

- Building mobile apps with gomobile

The first talk, will be from Spiros Gerokostas, about building iOS and Android apps with gomobile. In the presentation he will show some examples how to build a mobile sdk with gomobile and how to integrate this sdk into Xcode and Android studio.

In this talk, Agis Anastasopoulos will present the reasons behind Skroutz choosing the Go language for some of their most critical systems.
He will showcase the projects where the Go language was used, along with the challenges they faced and the lessons they learned along the way.
Lastly, we will see some of the practices, patterns and tools used in all of the Go projects within the organization.
P.S. This will be a technical talk, albeit no code will be shown!
