About this event

Join us for an introduction to Google's popular programming language Go.

This workshop will walk you through the basics of Go; what it is, what you can do with it, how the syntax is, what's in the standard library.

We will also dive a little deeper into some concepts where Go differs from the rest of the crowd and finally we'll finish with some hands on tutorials where you can try out Go for yourself.

This tutorial is held by Go expert and senior developer Ricco Førgaard from Apparat. He currently works as a DevOps- and Go developer at TV 2.

- Bring a laptop.
- Have Go installed
- Make sure you have an editor or IDE you're comfortable with. VS Code or IntelliJ are good options.
- Your IDE should have Go plugins installed
- Git and a browser are also nice to have.
- Be at least somewhat comfortable with using a terminal.

If you're feeling adventurous install Go and set it up following these directions: https://golang.org/doc/install
