Petra Barus, a Senior Developer Advocate at Amazon Web Services, will share "Define Cloud Infrastructure using Go Language with AWS Cloud Development Kit." In this presentation, Petra will demonstrate using the AWS CDK to model cloud applications on AWS, and share how to define cloud infrastructure using the CDK's new support for Go. By leveraging the familiar and friendly syntax of Go, it becomes easy to provision applications with customized CloudFormation templates and accelerate application deployments on AWS.

Petra is passionate in helping startups and developers in Indonesia to reinvent on behalf of their customers. Petra was the co-founder of, where he built the largest real-estate portal in Indonesia. After was acquired by, Petra stayed on as the country CTO and later joined AWS, where he works as an active advocate for the greater Indonesian and Asian tech communities. Petra enjoys mentoring Engineers and Startups and holds a Bachelors and Masters Degree from Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). Presented in English.

Kenneth ("Ken") Shaw will share "Realtime Data Visualization with Go (in 3d)!" During this presentation, Ken will walk through a simple realtime stats and data collection app that pipes data into a stunning, 3d, and realtime visualization! Meant to showcase the power of the Go programming language, Ken will present how Go's rapidly evolving ecosystem, allows one to quickly prototype new and inventive applications with Go.

Ken has spent the last 16 years building highly scalable payment and transaction systems using a variety of programming languages and frameworks. Ken is the author of a number of popular Go applications and packages (chromedp, xo, and usql), and has been actively programming in Go since late 2012. Ken holds a Bachelors in Information and Computer Science, from the University of California, Irvine. Presented in English.


GoJakarta is a monthly meetup group focused on examining applications, frameworks, and technologies written in the Go programming language. 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.
