Gather with fellow Gophers for an evening of Talks and discussion around Golang! All experience levels welcome, but this specific talk night will be more advanced!

In January it was stated that Second Tuesdays of the month would always be PDXGo event night. Well, this February gets the extra fortune of having a second night thanks to a special guest from Google being in town! So there will be two nights; advanced and beginner oriented! The advanced night will be the standard time Second Tuesday Feb 10th, and special beginner night on Thursday the 12th.


Hang out and chat with other Gophers until about 6:30

Talk: Kelsey Hightower (https://twitter.com/kelseyhightower) will be talking about CoreOS's new container project Rocket (https://coreos.com/blog/rocket/)! Rocket is a CLI for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.

• The state of networking in rocket and an overview of ipvlan (virtual networking for containers)

• Updates to the Application Container Spec

• Updates to Rocket

Rocket is entering the same service container space as Docker, and it will be exciting to see how the two Golang projects develop and contrast!

Continue discussion over beers at Baileys!

Thanks to Esri R&D for hosting us once again!
