Next Meetup

Sue Spence: Fast Fractal Fun with SDL (Simple Directmedia Layer)
Go programs which create images such as the Mandelbrot & Julia sets often output an image file. I will show how to use Go bindings for the Simple Directmedia Layer library to output them on a display device instead. I'll explore some of the multimedia features of libsdl as well. Sponsored by Speechmatics 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 second 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.

    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.
