Go Workshop

What could be better than a Go conference? A Go conference and a Go workshop! Introducing our Practical Go workshop, June 21, taught by Johnny Boursiquot the day before CapitalGo!

Where and When: GMU Founders Hall, Room 120, 3351 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22201 — 9:30 AM until 5 PM (breakfast starts at 8:30).

Description: Learn the skills you’ll need day-to-day to work with the Go programming language. This all-day workshop will help developers get up to speed with Go from the ground up, covering language syntax through to concurrency. Along the way, you will learn best practices for project layout, testing, reusability, and dependency management. You will get practical, hands-on experience tailoring your development environment for Go development, building CLI tools to automate your mundane tasks, writing HTTP servers and microservices, packaging and shipping code with containers, and leveraging CI tools for automated tests and builds as part of your workflow. You will leave this workshop feeling confident taking your next steps with Go.

Guiding you through this journey will be Johnny Boursiquot, author of the well-liked Go Standard Library Solutions. course available from Packt Publishing. Johnny is an active member and leader within the Go community. He runs the Baltimore Metro Area Go User Group, leads the GoBridge organization, and speaks regularly at conferences and meetups. He loves to teach and to welcome new members into the community. Reach him on Twitter @jboursiquot.
