Using Go in the Real World

Thursday, 2 April, 2015 - 19:30 to 21:00

This month's talk is titled

    "Using Go in the Real World"

Douglas McCallum will be giving us a rundown on the use of Go in the real world.

Go is a programming language created by Google which has been seeing more coverage in the media recently; with C-like syntax, aim for readability and simplicity of use, garbage collection, compile to machine code and package management, it seems to be somewhere between C and Python, and it is gaining in much popularity since its release in 2009. It has a GCC version called gccgo.

Douglas has been a developer in a wide range of industries for many years who, amongst other activities, deploys RPis to project ads at unsuspecting passers-by with dynamic content where they least expect it; as well as one of the organisers for TechMeetup Edinburgh.


The meeting will be in the back room of the Southsider Pub, West Richmond Street, Edinburgh. The talk should kick off shortly after 7:30pm. After the talk, there will be time for socializing, with light bites and a chance to catch up with attendees.
