What we're about

A meetup group to discuss the Go Programming Language.

(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.

[GoSF] Decentralized Storage Powered by Go + More [Wed, Oct 16th]

Agenda ----------- 6:00 Networking | Food | Drink 6:30 Speakers • TBD • Networking Break (15min) • Decentralized Storage Powered by Go (Siva Dirisala,0Chain) --------------------- About the Sponsor Samsara’s mission is to bring the benefits of sensor data to the organizations that drive our economy—from transportation and logistics to construction, food production, energy, and manufacturing—and to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of their operations. Visit them at www.samsara.com --------------------- Talk 1: TBD Please contact the organizer if you'd like to present --------------------- Talk 2: Decentralized Storage Powered by Go (Siva Dirisala,0Chain) Siva Dirisala from 0Chain will talk about decentralized storage solutions - why they are needed and how they operate. He'll describe 0ChainNet and 0Storage both of which are built using the Golang, which makes it easy to deal with concurrency inherent with blockchains and decentralized storage protocols. 0ChainNet is a Nonlinear Proof Of Stake-based blockchain with multiple leaders. 0chain's dStorage is a decentralized storage platform built leveraging 0chainNet. As part of his talk he'll talk about the architecture and how they are using using erasure coding and proxy re-encryption to provide a fast and secure solution. He'll also address the underlying technical components and go interfaces network and platform use including RocksDB (accessed via gorocksdb), Cassandra (using gocql), and Herumi’s BLS code for cryptography. About the Speaker Siva Dirisala, CTO of 0Chain, has 20 years of experience in Cloud and Big Data at Oracle and Service Now. He has led the architecture and development of 0ChainNet, 0Box, and 0Wallet, and led innovations of several 0Chain protocols.
