Join us for a night of Go talks Monday night April 24th, following the Capital Go workshop day (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/capital-go-training-day-2017-tickets-32139752866), and the night before the Capital Go Language Conference (http://capitalgolang.com/). Food and beverages will be provided by our hosts Capital One.

Daniel Whitenack will present "Intro to Machine Learning in Go". Daniel (http://www.datadan.io/) is a Ph.D. trained data scientist working with Pachyderm (https://twitter.com/pachydermIO). He develops innovative, distributed data pipelines which include predictive models, data visualizations, statistical analyses, and more.

Also, Jon Bodner, Technology Fellows Program at Capital One, will present a sneak peek at his GopherCon talk.

Runtime Generated, Typesafe, and Declarative: Pick Any Three Go code is sometimes called repetitive. By adopting techniques like tags, reflection, and runtime function generation, you can focus on the algorithm and not on boilerplate. I'll show off Proteus, which uses these ideas to implement a runtime generated, type-safe, SQL-injection-proof DAO layer.
