You came all the way for the dotGo conference and will be in Paris on sunday 9th evening ? Feel like meeting the local crowd and other fellow gophers from around the world ? Then join the GIG : gathering of international gophers !

We're inviting gophers to meet and interact directly in an inclusive, non elitist, informal manner, through a series of lightning talks, followed by a time for chats, laughs, demos, non generic thinking and static dancing :>

• Martin Schoch ( will present bleve ( : a search engine

• Fatih Arslan ( will demo us the latest on vim-go (

• You : topics are quite open, you could present a go project you worked on, a go project you're fond of, tell a story related to go, focus on a new feature from go 1.7, compare some features with other languages, or something else you think would be of interest : let us know.
