#gomtl-02 - March 29th - Talks

We are excited to announce the talks for our second meetup !

We still have some slots left for more lightning talks. If you have any ideas, let us know today!

Introduction to Go
In this talk, we will be doing a live demonstration of several of Go's feature. For new comers, this should wet your appetite, especially if you come from some dynamically typed languages (JS, Python, Ruby, etc..). It will be live coded and you can throw in your questions.
