19:30-20:00 Generics Draft Proposal Review / Bill Kennedy

With the release of the new draft proposal for generics, Go. inches closer to having a version of generics in the language. It’s important that the community as a whole agrees this new language feature feels like Go and will add value to the language and the applications we build.

In this talk, Bill Kennedy will review the major aspects of the draft proposal with code samples. He will spend time teaching different aspects of the new syntax and show how generics can help make Go programs more readable when it’s reasonable and practical to use generics. After the presentation will ask questions to the group to get feedback and opinions.

20:00-20:30 Announcements, HR lost & found, break

20:30-21:00 My First Go Project / Thomas Bradford

A super nerdy talk about how I learned Go in the process of building a Scheme compiler and virtual machine. How I started with a Rob Pike lexer example and slowly but surely found my own Go voice.

21:00-end Networking
