Event Details

The Capital Region programming meetup AgnosTechValley is hosting a free, two-day workshop about the Go programming language. Go is an open source programming language, originally developed at Google, that enables the production of simple, efficient and reliable software at scale.

Our instructor, William Kennedy, will be teaching his "Ultimate Go" class. This class provides an intensive, comprehensive and idiomatic view of the Go programming language. This is an intermediate-level class for developers with some experience in programming who may be trying to dig deeper into the Go language. In addition to learning the internals of the language, attendees can expect to walk away with philosophies and techniques for solving common problems in software development.

This will be a GoBridge event. GoBridge is member of the Bridge Foundry and is an organization whose mission is to enable underrepresented groups in tech to use the Go programming language as a tool to learn and teach programming and, ultimately, to empower these groups to help increase diversity in the Go community.

Go Community

We are hoping to make this event approachable to those who are new to the local programming community and are asking for your help in promoting this event to anyone who is interested in learning a new programming language or advancing their knowledge of the principles of software development.

This event is open for anyone to attend and is targeted at those with at least some programming experience that are interested in learning about the Go programming language.

Each day will be from 9AM - 5PM and a light breakfast, lunch and coffee/beverages will be provided for attendees.

We hope to see you there and help us grow our awesome local programming community!
