Go (also known as Golang) is a great programming language to learn and develop in. We built this meetup to offer a better entry point to women who are interested in Go. We also want to provide a space for networking, learning and finding mentors. This group shall bring us together so we can continue to grow in Go.
You can become a WWG mentee if:
1. You identify as female, publicly or privately
2. You have some interest in Go
Supporters of Women Who Go are welcome to join, especially as mentors. For the Go Study Groups, the mentee/learners spots will be given to women.
Women Who Go Berlin & GDG Golang Berlin are happy to invite you to the GoDays mid-conference meetup. This is your chance to mingle with some of the conference attendees and speakers and enjoy some great talks. So save date and we'll see you there!
19:00-19:25 Networking over drinks and pizza

19:30-20:00 Go Modules: What They Are And Why You Should Care / Ellen Körbes
Package management has been a contentious topic in the Go community from day one. Let's take a look at a potential solution coming out in Go 1.11, called "modules." We'll discuss what they are, how to start using them, check out some examples, and see where they stand against the alternatives. Attendees will hopefully come out knowing whether this feature fits their particular case, and if so, how to implement it.
20:00-20:30 Announcements, HR lost & found, break
20:30-20:50 GRPC for the Web / Luk Burchard
20:50-21:00 Observability in the Kitchen / Daisy Tsang
How can you leverage sensors, open-source software, and Go to improve your kitchen skills? This short talk explores the relationship between bread-making, humidity, and temperature, and how one can use monitoring tools to gain insight into the lively world of sourdough cultures.
