West Yorkshire Python User Group

The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.

We discuss our meetings on the Python Yorkshire and Humberside Google Group and you can also follow us on Twitter at @WYPython.

Go From a Python Programmer's Perspective

Thursday June 14, 2012

Go is a new language with a long pedigree. It was designed at Google by Rob Pike (one of the designers of Unix) and Ken Thomson (one of the designers of C). Go seems to be gaining traction as an environment for developing simple, efficient applications.

Matt Goodall (@atomatt) will be introducing us to Go; showing us some of the key aspects of the language and the runtime's concurrency primitives by building a simple server application.

Date and Time

Thursday 14 May, talk from 7:30pm.

If you want to arrive before the talk, the venue will be open from about 6.30. We will be finished by 9, and we will be going to the pub afterwards.

Location

Old Broadcasting House
148 Woodhouse Lane
Leeds
LS2 9EN

We will be holding the talk in the boardroom at the back of the ground floor of the building. If you arrive late we may not hear the doorbell, so please phone Peter on <removed>.

Coming up

Nothing scheduled yet. Please check back soon.
