Hi London Gophers! 👋🏳️‍🌈

Summer is in full swing! It warming up and that can only mean one thing ... Time for another London Gophers evening.

This month we have a great new host Sainsbury's 🎉

As usual, if you can't make it for the main event join us for social drinks after the main event or watch Live on our YouTube channel https://youtube.com/londongophers

🗣 Daniela Petruzalek - Pacman from scratch

In this talk you will learn how to code Pac Man clone that runs on the terminal, with emojis! This talk is not just about the game, but to present a tutorial that can be used self-paced or as a workshop, to teach yourself and others the basics of the Go programming language. If you are either interested in Go, or game programming, or both, this tutorial is a nice and fun way to learn new things.

🗣 ⚡️Nick Wells - Semantic versioning - what Go programmers need to know

In this talk, Nick will discuss the semantic versioning spec and how it relates to Go modules. I'll also discuss some of the trickier questions about deciding on what the version number should be

🗣 Beth Anderson - Go: An Origin Story

In this talk we'll see Go’s origin story and why it developed the super-powers it now possesses. We’ll go through where Go comes from, the ideas that formed Go, what Go became, and we’ll look at some code which shows the ideas in action.

Please be aware we will be checking names at the door and attendance is strictly limited. To make it fair to everyone we will start letting in people from the waitlist from 18:45 onwards until we reach max capacity.
