GopherCon Europe is back for the 4th year, woohoo!

We are once again gearing up to give the stage to our amazing Go community. Last year’s GopherCon Europe moved online, and this year you can be part of our online agenda with attendees from all around the globe.

CFP Description

The talks for GopherCon Europe have no specific theme or agenda, besides being related to the Go language, or generally interesting to a crowd of Go programmers.

Successful talks tend to have a coherent narrative, be delivered by a passionate speaker, and leave the audience with concrete lessons to take back home to their friends and colleagues. Based on prior conferences, the audience will be a mix of Go beginners, intermediate users, and experts.

We’d like to hear about how experience with Go’s ancestor languages affected your Go experience, what good and bad things did Go take or leave out from other language, Go’s ancestors and so on.

Vintage is a topic we’ve added last year, and it’s here for this year too. If you’d like to talk about this, please choose Vintage Talk at the Type of Talk field of this CFP.

Go is mostly in the C family (basic syntax), with significant input from the Pascal/Modula/Oberon family (declarations, packages), plus some ideas from languages inspired by Tony Hoare’s CSP, such as Newsqueak and Limbo (concurrency). However, it is a new language across the board. In every respect the language was designed by thinking about what programmers do and how to make programming, at least the kind of programming we do, more effective, which means more fun.

We’re looking for speakers from all levels of experience. First time speakers are very welcome!
