I hope you're ready for this Gophers!
This will be our last meetup of the year and we are going out with a bang!
Huge thanks to Microsoft for hosting in their Reactor hub and for supplying us with food and drink!
Slight change of plan for tonight. Sadly Cera is now unable to attend tonight. So first up we will have Dave Cheney!
Talk: Going without.
The end of the year is a time for reflection. Let's talk about what Go would be like if we make a new years resolution to give something up.
We will talk for 25-30 minutes with a few questions - so maybe think about some questions you may have about Go - this is the perfect opportunity to discuss.
Huge thanks to Sonia Hamilton for stepping in tonight.
Sonia's talk will be targeted towards early Go users.
This will be a hands-on session covering very basic Go programming - starting with "Hello World!" then moving on to making decisions, looping and using the debugger. To get the most out of the session you'll need the following: a laptop (Windows/Mac/Linux) with Golang installed (Google 'download golang') and the Jetbrains Goland editor installed (Google 'download goland free evaluation'). These are large downloads and slow installs so you should do this before the session. To keep things consistent we'll be editing using Goland, so please install it even if you prefer another editor like Visual Code, Vim, Sublime, etc.
Sonia currently works as a Go programmer and has worked for many large corporates both in Australia and overseas. She has been programming Go for 5 years and maintains the popular Gosnmp project on Github; outside of tech she enjoys hiking, the guitar and Brazilian culture.
