What we're about

London Gophers ( https://gophers.london ), aka Go London User Group (GLUG), is a London-based community for anyone interested in the Go programming language.

London Gophers provides opportunities to:

- Discuss Go and related topics
- Socialise with friendly people who are interested in Go
- Find or fill Go-related jobs (https://github.com/go-london-user-group/admin/blob/master/runbooks/jobs/README.md)

We want London Gophers to be a diverse and inclusive community. As such all attendees, organisers and sponsors are required to follow the Go community code of conduct (https://golang.org/conduct).
