Are you familiar with the official Go programming language documentation?

The https://tour.golang.org gives a great interactive introduction to the language syntax and basic usage, and what could be more awesome than learning it all with other peers and live guidance?

Writing tests and coding in Go with no fear!

In this workshop we will follow along the official tour, and then, as time permits, will do a small coding dojo, where participants get a chance to familiarize themselves with developing Go code with the aid of automated tests.


• a laptop with a recent Web browser (to visit https://tour.golang.org)

• no previous experience with Go required


• if you feel like it, you can do the tour at home, and bring questions

• install Go on your laptop (won't be needed, but can be useful to bring questions if you have trouble setting up a development environment)

Workshop leader: Rodolfo Henrique Carvalho

Rodolfo is a developer at Red Hat, hacking on OpenShift, an open source PaaS written in Go. He also runs weekly coding dojos in Brno -- a great opportunity to learn more about Go and improve your programming skills.
