Hear from Go in the field and learn to code it

Please bring an ID card.

This evening we like to start with a presentation from a Go developer who is actually using this language to build a live production system.  

For the second part we plan to have another live tutorial coding session in which attendees will work on a simple but hopefully exciting challlenge.  

Have a look at Spirograph to see such a tutorial we had in the past.

18:30  Food and drinks, sponsored by Marktplaats

19:00 Using Go in production at Foize, Geert-Johan Riemer

"Foize focuses on innovative applications in the field where telecommunications meet information technology."

19.45  Debugging Thrift, Frank Schröder

About what it means to have the full source code and able to patch it.

20:15 Go programming Angry Balls, Ernest Micklei

Make sure you bring your laptop, have Go1.2+ installed and choose a decent IDE (or vi ...). Participation requires a working Wifi connection. Knowledge of net/http and encoding/json will save you time.

    Just as an indication... What will be the level of the tutorial? Beginner, intermediate, advanced...?

    April 3, 2014

    • Ernest M.

      I think it is intermediate, the workshop will show a solution after each step to discuss so you can always catch up after the more difficult part. The final result will be made available as well.

      I like to consider myself intermediate, so that's cool :) See you in about an hour!

    Hi, I don't have a laptop, however I'm just at the very beginning of Golang. Would it be possible to partecipate passively only by sitting next to someone?

    April 3, 2014

    • Ernest M.

      Yes, we encourage people to sit together to work on the challenges given this evening.

    For those setting up their laptop now:

    Installing Go:

    Setup environment:
    (Make sure to get a good understanding of "GOPATH")

    As editor/"IDE" I can recommend SublimeText with the GoSublime plugin. But any other editor and a terminal will do just fine.

    Please bring your ID card tonight. Best way to get here is to take the train to Amstel. There is no parking available.

    Is there any parking available on the premises?

    March 7, 2014

    • Ernest M.

      Not really, it is very close to Amstel Station so train/tram would be best to travel
