  • Go TO: Hack Night and Social
    Hey Everyone, it has been a while since we have seen each other and it's time for a Go hack night! You can hack on anything you want. Open source, closed source. Work. Play. Any skill level on anything on any project, it’s all good as long as you're here to sling code. Also I will be modernizing my go bot battle game so that we can use it for future competitions at hack nights. If anyone wants to help or is curious the repo is at github.com/tanema/botbattle. Keep in mind that project was created 4 years ago :D Here's the schedule: • Doors open at 6PM • Pizza at 6:15PM • Wrap up at 8:45PM • Doors close at 9:00PM So, bring your projects and we'll bring the pizza!

  • Go 1.8 Release Party
    What's happening? To celebrate the release of Go 1.8 we're to organising a world wide release party on February the 16th, 2017. https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/Go-1.8-Release-Party I figured since most of you probably already know what is coming out in the new release so we should head to the bar and chat about it over drinks. But what if I am new? The Go Toronto members are all really nice and great to talk to. You can come out and tell us your ideas or maybe just ask a question about something you are struggling with. Please RSVP Early so I know how many people I am expecting and how much room to reserve. We have a Code of Conduct (https://gist.github.com/tanema/2c727179f2a58b38a301bcbe2e7c15b8) that applies to this and other Golang events. Thanks, see you there!
