Hi London Gophers

This summer hasn't exactly brought us a fresh breeze, but here's a shower of good news!

GopherCon UK was probably the best so far, really enjoyed seeing many of you, but here's the news you've all been waiting for... London Gophers are back! 💪
We'll be back in Old Street, hosted by our friends at Pivotal, on the 15th of August.

This latest edition will feature two talks and three lightning talks, and here are some details:

▶︎ Nicholas Ng ( @nicholascwng ) -
"Building a simple concurrency teaching language with Go" - In this talk Nicholas will present the design and implementation of a simple language designed for teaching concurrency theory (process calculi), implemented in Go.I will cover some of Go's static analysis tools used in the implementation and show how you can use them too!

▶︎ Johan Brandhorst ( @JohanBrandhorst ) - Lightning talk
"Get Going with WebAssembly" - In this talk, Johan will introduce you to the WebAssembly port in Go 1.11 and how it can help when dealing with JavaScript madness :)

▶︎ Daniel Martì (@mvdan_ )
"What else is in Go 1.11?"

▶︎ DJ Walker-Morgan ( @codepope ) - Lightning talk
"Go and Mongo - and how it's changing"

▶︎ Paul Jolly (@_myitcv )
"What are Go modules and how do I use them?"

Everyone attending the event will have a chance to win a JetBrains license valid for a year 😱

We'll also have a section dedicated to those of you who are hiring or looking to get hired 😉

If you'd like to give a talk at the future meetups, don't be shy, we are always looking for speakers and speaker mentors that want to share their adventures with Go. Do get in touch!

With this being said, let your friends know and join us to hear our next guests talking about their endeavours.

See you in a few days!

P.S. We are always looking for sponsors - and venues! - as well. So if you know someone that can help us with the food / beverage budget, we'll be happy to add the name to our sponsors list. Gophers are known to like food and being hydrated. Thank you!
