Our TICKETS are available now! But act fast. Our early tickets are almost gone.
We will also have an Intro to Go workshop taught by Mat Ryer, the author of Go Programming Blueprints: Second Edition, and a regular speaker at conferences around the world. The class is an "all day introduction to the Go language for developers who want to learn Go from the ground up, and kick off their Go developing career in style!"
