Zurich A fast and furious ride through
On Thursday 15 March 2012 from 18h30 to 22h00.
Join us for a fast and furious ride through Go theory and practice!
Go is "a new [..], concurrent, garbage-collected language with fast compilation" that came out of Google (http://golang.org/).
First, Luuk van Dijk, a member of the core dev team, will introduce us to the Go language and its main features.
Then, Johan Euphrosine, will take us through the motions of building an actual Go application for the Google App Engine!
This session is as hands-on as you want it to be. Please make sure to bring your laptop with the Go language SDK already installed (see http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/go/gettingstarted/devenvironment.html)
It would be great if you could register on the event page (http://zhgeeks.org/go) since the number of places is limited.
Please note also that this is a joint event, organized with the kind support of the GTUG ZH (http://zurich.gtugs.org/home).
