This is a group for anyone in the North East of England who's interested in the Go programming language. We usually meet up in Newcastle on the fourth Tuesday of every month at Campus North, Carliol Square.
With the release of the new draft proposal for generics, Go. inches closer to having a version of generics in the language. It's important that the community as a whole agrees this new language feature feels like Go and will add value to the language and the applications we build.
In this talk, Bill Kennedy will review the major aspects of the draft proposal with code samples. He will spend time teaching different aspects of the new syntax and show how generics can help make Go programs more readable when it's reasonable and practical to use generics. After the presentation will ask questions to the group to get feedback and opinions.
