Hello Gophers,

We hope you are hungry for new Go brain food and thirsty for some developer wisdom.

We're always looking for new speakers: whether you never gave a talk or spoke in all the conferences, whether you talk about your fun project or something you're doing at work, either way - we'd like to hear from you.
If you'd like to give a talk - submit your proposals here: https://goo.gl/forms/54YvJT223F

We're meeting every 2nd Wednesday of the month, remaining online until end of spring 2021 and maybe longer.

If you'd like to suggest topics for the fishbowl session or if you have more ideas - talk to us at the Gophers slack: https://gophersinvite.herokuapp.com/ in the #berlin channel.

19:10-19:25 Networking over your home beverage

19:25-19:30 Welcome words

19:30-20:00 Simulations for the Mathematically Challenged / Miki Tebeka

In this talk I'll show that you don't need more than basic programming skills and very little math to solve data intensive problems. We'll find the best tile in Catan, compute pi, look at the birthday problem and more, eventually there will be goats.

20:00-20:15 Announcements, HR lost & found, break

20:15-20:45 Using Go to express higher-level distributed systems concepts, through static analysis and code generation / Andr矇 Eriksson

You'll learn how to write programs that look like regular Go code, that when compiled turn into fully-fledged distributed systems. The result is an augmented form of Go that works the same way, but which offers powerful capabilities beyond what the base language offers.

20:45-end Networking
