Intro to Go
October 25, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC-5
Hey everyone! We’re doing something a little bit different, but really cool for this month’s meetup. We’ll be holding our meetup at Fintank 2014 – the first hackathon & tech education event at Sunlife Stadium. We’re lucky to have again Bill Kennedy lead an awesome intro to Go session (more info below). Look forward to seeing you there!
Go became a public open source project on November 10th, 2009 and in less than a month becomes 5 years old. The language is quickly becoming an important part of the internet infrastructure we all take for granted. It is being used today by large and small companies to develop both products and services. Maybe the most well known technology to date is Docker from dotCloud. If you are developing backend services, infrastructure, API’s or asynchronous processes, Go is a language designed from the ground up to meet your needs.
In this 2 hour training workshop, you will learn the basics of the Go language and then review a web application that performs concurrent web searches against the Bing, Bleeko and Google search engines.
