What we're about

A meetup group in Chicago to discuss the Go Programming Language( https://golang.org/ ).

(from golang.org)

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.

We want to get to know the Chicago Go community and continue to promote it's growth.

JWTs - what Golang developers need to know by Dan Moore

What is a JSON Web Token (JWT) and why do you care? JWTs are a stateless, standardized way to represent user data. This talk will discuss why JWTs matter and the nuts and bolts of JWTs. We’ll also discuss how you might use a JWT in your applications and how to avoid common mistakes.

Dan Moore is head of developer relations for FusionAuth. He’s been using golang off and on since 2018. A former CTO, engineering manager and longtime developer, he's been writing software for (checks watch) over 20 years.
