About this event

Partnering with Golang DC we are bringing the Go 1.8 Release Party.

Date: Thu 02/16/2017 - 7 PM. 

Location: 1200 18th Street NW Suite #700, Washington, DC,

What's happening?

To celebrate the release of Go 1.8 we're to organising a world wide release party on February the 16th, 2017.

</a> Hang on, did you say Go 1.8 ships on the 16th of February?

Nope! Go 1.8 is in good shape to ship in early February, but no firm release date has been published; it might be as early as the 1st of Feb, or it might not.

Come on down to MakeOffices in Dupont! We'll toast to the 1.8 and speculate wildly about the future.

What happens in a release party?

As with the previous release parties, this is a great opportunity to spread the word about the improvements landing 1.8, and the plans for the 1.9 development cycle.
