Gather with fellow Gophers for an evening of Talks and discussion around Golang! All experience levels welcome, but night will focus on learning Go! If you're interested in something more advanced and less hands on come to our Talk night (http://www.meetup.com/PDX-Go/events/219844299/) and learn about CoreOS's Rocket on February 10th.

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 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.

Workshop night for Beginners:
Francesc Campoy Flores (https://twitter.com/francesc) from Google will be in town for advocacy events and will run a beginner Go workshop! The topic has yet to be finalized, but the workshop will take someone unfamiliar with Go and work through a fun project as a group in around two hours.
An example project for the curious(not necessarily the actual project):

More details will be announced once topics are finalized!
