Join us for a weekend of writing Go code with other Gophers in Philly as part of the Gopher Gala! Gopher Gala is a the world's first Go(lang) distributed hackathon in which thousands of hackers from all of the world will spend a weekend writing apps primarily in Go for prizes and fun. For more information, check out the Gopher Gala (http://gophergala.com/) website.
This event is open to everyone with an interest in Go, no matter if you’re a beginner or an expert. Some prior programming experience is encouraged, however.
Please only register for this event if you are planning to attend the entire weekend, as space is very limited. Schedule:
Friday (Jan. 23rd) 6-9PM @ Indy Hall
Drink some beer, meet other folks and talk through your project ideas. We’ll go over some of the basics of Go so that you’re ready to go Saturday morning. If you aren't sure of what you want to do, we can get that taken care of here.
Saturday (Jan. 24th) 9AM-6PM @ Indy Hall
Code! Breakfast and lunch will be available.
Sunday (Jan. 25th) 9AM-6PM @ Indy Hall
Continue coding! At 4:30 we’ll get back together and show each other how far we’ve gotten. You’ll have until 8PM EST to submit your project. Afterward we’ll go to National Mechanics to celebrate.
Big thanks for Vistar Media (http://www.vistarmedia.com/) for sponsoring!
