  "Google Go: Not Just For Googlers, also for Gophers!"

  presented by Case Talbot,
  Developer, Smashwords, Inc.

  Go is a new programming language created in 2006 by Google.
  While originally envisioned as a modern alternative to static languages
  such as C++ and Java, it has found a steady following in refugees
  from dynamic languages such as Ruby and Python due to its simple,
  consistent, and performant design.

  We'll go over some of the basic concepts of Go such as build structure,
  error handling, tag annotation, and the power of interfaces while
  making a simple web application.

About the speaker:

  Case Talbot is developer at Smashwords, geek, and lover of electronics,
  shiny things, books, and awesome.

This meeting will be held at:

  Yolo County Public Library, Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch
