A meetup group to discuss the Go Programming Language.

(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.

Speaker: Jon Calhoun
Talk name: Journey Before Destination
Quick description: When learning to code it is easy to focus solely on where we want to be and to try to rush to the end. Jon believes that is a mistake, and in this talk he discusses why the journey is important and how to make the most of resources when learning Go.
