Speaking Sessions

  • Getting Started with The Go Programming Language ( golang )

    1:00 PM Saturday   Room: Town Square A
    Go is an open-source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.

    Go is an amazing choice for a language as it was developed by some of the same individuals who created the C programming language, Unix, and UTF-8 - some of the most influential contributions to computer science. Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson created Go to be a modern language that easily uses multiple cores, easily implements concurrency, easily works in distributed environments, and easily allows the programmer to write programs - it has a very lean and user-friendly syntax.

    Go was created by luminaries in computer science at one of the best, if not the very best, software engineering firm to have ever existed - Google.

    The credentials of Go are unsurpassed.

    In my opinion, Go is the best programming language that you can be learning today.

    Come learn about the greatest programming language ever created. You will leave with resources and code samples to start making all of your software and apps really go.

  • Learn To Build A Website with Golang

    5:00 PM Saturday   Room: Round Table
    The Go programming language is the best choice for web programming today.

    Created by Google, the Go programming language allows you to build web services that easily scale.

    In this session, you will learn how to build a web server in Go and will see how to program routes to handle requests and serve responses.

    For three years, it has been my privilege to teach the Go Programming Language and Web Development With Go at both the college and university level. I have taught Go as an introductory programming course and I have taught Go to graduate students in computer science. In addition, I have taught over 50,000 students online the Go Programming Language.

    I am looking forward to sharing with you my passion for Go, along with the great repositories I have developed over the last two years to help people learn Web Development With Go.
