What we're about
This group is open to anyone interested in Go : from the curious to the experienced user.
Starting january 2015 the intention is to arrange irregular meetups at DIGS in Olav Trygvassonsgate 30. Some meetups will be organised for new users to learn the language, others will discuss more specific subjects (libs/frameworks presentations, tooling, best practices etc).
"Go, otherwise known as Golang, is an open source, compiled, garbage-collected, concurrent system programming language. It was first designed and developed at Google beginning in September 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson." (Wikipedia)
From golang.org: The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
