July 8th, 2014 MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Topics this month include:
The Go Programming Language
You might have heard about Go the programming language as the laguage developed at Google, but probably haven’t looked much further than Wikipedia for what the Go Language is all about. You might not have known that it was initially developed at Google by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike and Ken Thompson, is based loosely on C but with many features of modern languages like garbage collection and some dynamic typing capabilities. You also may not know that many projects such as Docker and Canonical’s own Juju project are using Go. Mark Ramm-Christensen will talk about the Go programming language and highlight Canonical’s usage and involvement with Go. If you’ve ever heard Mark Ramm-Christensen speak you’ll know this promises to be an event you won’t want to miss.
Mark Ramm-Christensen is the Engineering Manager for Canonical, and a long-time contributor to not only MUG but the open-source community as a whole.
Plus we’ll have our usual features (Jobs Looking For People, People Looking for Jobs, news and events), and much much more.
