In this presentation, Ken will walk through the basics of using the Go programming language, tailored to beginner and intermediate developers who are learning Go for the first time. The class will begin at 10:00am and end roughly at 3:00pm. Will be presented in English.

SPACE IS LIMITED! Please only RSVP if you are able to attend.

Ken has spent the last 15 years building highly scalable payment and transaction systems using a variety of programming languages and frameworks. Ken is the author of a number of popular Go Packages (chromedp, xo, and usql), and has been actively programming in Go since late 2012. Ken is an active member of the community, speaking regularly at technology meetups and events, and is the Founder of GoJakarta.

ABOUT GO JAKARTA:

GoJakarta is a monthly meetup group focused on examining applications, frameworks, and technologies written in the Go programming language. The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
