Event description


GopherCon Community Day is appropriately named because it’s all about the community, meeting new people, and learning together.

NATS and Minio have a room reserved during Community Day, so we saw this as the perfect opportunity to include some other great Go technologies and speakers as well! We are confident you’ll get a lot out of the content because we’re planning to cover something for everyone.

We will start with talks by two really awesome guest speakers (Ashley McNamara and Gabe Monroy) to kick things off, before diving deeper into Minio and NATS to close us out.

Seating in the room is limited to approximately 80 people (*Please note this event is for GopherCon attendees only*), so if you would like to attend please be sure to RSVP!

The NATS team would like to thank Apcera for sponsoring Community Day!

We would also like to thank Pivotal for sponsoring snacks and drinks!
