What we're about

A meetup group to discuss the Go Programming Language.

What is Go?

(from golang.org) The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.

Dynamic and Concurrent Error Handling Fun in Go (in-person and virtual)

Link visible for attendees

We are excited to meet in-person once again at SPS Tower! Real people and real pizza, what a combo! We want to continue to make our meetups virtually accessible and engaging for those who wish to attend remotely. Please reference "Public Safety Guidelines" below the agenda for details on attending in-person.

Join us for "Dynamic and Concurrent Error Handling Fun in Go", presented by Bryan English, Principal Software Engineer at Golden Grizzly Software Consulting. Bryan will be presenting in-person.

Error handling in go can be a lot more than simply "if err != nil". How far can we stretch the error interface, and how do we handle concurrent errors?

Agenda

  • 6pm - 6:30pm: Networking, food & drink, and announcements
  • 6:30pm - 7:45pm: Dynamic and Concurrent Error Handling Fun in Go - Bryan English
  • 7:45pm - 8:00pm - Open Discussion

Located at SPS Tower. 333 S 7th St, Minneapolis, MN 55402
From the 7th Street entrance, go up the escalator and take the elevator bank to the 8th floor.

While the skyway is open until 8p, the outside street level doors and the elevators are restricted at 6p, so please arrive 10m early if possible. An SPS employee will be near the elevator to provide access to the 8th floor until 6:15p. If you arrive after that, please text[masked] and someone will come down to let you in. Thanks for your patience.
