About this event

In a 3h step by step hands-on lab, we will guide you in the discovery of Go.

In this quick tour, we will start by introducing the syntax of the language (variables, conditions, etc.)

Data structures, pointers, and associated logic with methods have a unique implementation in Go,

we will see how it is particularly achieved here.

To finish, performance and parallelization, we will practice goroutines and how it scales on modern CPU.

Sébastien Friess, Director of Engineering, SFEIR (France)

Hi, I'm Sébastien, I'm a backend architect, developer, and also trainer in Lille (FR) at SFEIR. After 10 years of Java in distributed systems, I started Go in 2015 for my clients.

This is now how I support them in cloud environments and especially on the Google Cloud Platform. I'm very pleased to introduce to you this language, it is a fantastic enabler in modern software architectures.
