Hey there, if you're in the Cardiff area and interested in Go, this is for you. We run a mix of hack nights, training sessions, guest speakers and social evening. Speaker? Event ideas? Topic requests? Venue offer? Drinks? Food? Co-organiser? Do get in touch!
Stickermule (https://www.stickermule.com/uk) - providing our amazing Welsh Gopher stickers for the year. If you like our logo, come to our meetup to claim a sticker! If you like stickers, check out stickermule!
We're starting the new year with a new format - a study group! We'll spend the evening working together to share and improve our knowledge on a specific area of Go, in this case concurrency patterns.
This may be a mix of people giving demos, pair/group programming or reading and watching existing content to better our understandings of how concurrency patterns are written in Go and where they may each be best applied.
We hope this will allow people of all skill levels and familiarity with Go to participate/learn/share more about the language as well as different approaches. This is a new approach for us though, and as always we'd really appreciate any feedback!
This topic has come from suggestions in our Github repo (https://github.com/golang-cymru/cardiff-meetup-code), if you have suggestions for other topics in the future that you'd like to learn more about please feel free to open a Pull Request or message the meetup directly.
