Next Meetup

Go contribution workshop
Sue Spence has kindly agreed to host a go contribution workshop. Learn how you can contribute to the go standard library. Google employees designed and developed the Go programming language Go is open source and while Google retains control and direction over the language, anyone can contribute to the language and its ecosystem. What does Go consist of? How is the source organised? How do I look at it? How do I find out what I can contribute? How do I actually go about sending a change? What is the review process like? Use of laptops is encouraged but not required. Pizza and drinks will be provided. Sponsored by Speechmatics and JetBrains Speechmatics is a leading provider of automatic speech recognition technology, based in Cambridge, UK, enabling world-leading companies to understand the spoken world. Speechmatics is hosting its fourth Go Meetup at its offices in Cambridge. It is an opportunity to collaborate with industry experts and learn more about Go. The purpose of this Meetup is to increase the popularity of Go, and help to improve the programming skills in the local area. JetBrains has kindly provided us with a 1 year license to any JetBrains product to give away. We will be holding a raffle to select the winner.

    About Go

    The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
