GopherCon Europe is the annual European conference for the Go programming language. This year, we are excited to bring back the conference to Berlin for its 6th edition!

Whether you are able to join us in person or prefer to attend remotely, we have you covered. We will be streaming the sessions online in a hybrid format, so everyone can participate from wherever they are. Our goal is to bring together Go developers from all over the world to share their knowledge, experiences, and ideas. We are looking for engaging and informative talks that cover a wide range of topics related to Go programming.

While the event is hybrid, all the talks are in-person.

Never been? On our YouTube channel you can find all the talks from the past years.

CFP Description

Our schedule of talks has already been finalized but it’s not too late to secure your slot on our agenda. We are still accepting submissions for Lightning Talks or for Hosts for our Round Table discussions until May 31!

The Lightning Talks will take place from 15:30-16:00 on Thursday June 29, with each talk lasting 5-7 minutes.

If you would like to be a roundtable host at our Contributors Summit on Monday June 26 from 14:00-18:00 then let us know your topic and a description of the themes you would like to cover.

Our conference is focused on the Go programming language and we welcome proposals on a wide range of topics related to Go development. This includes, but is not limited to, best practices, case studies, libraries and frameworks, performance optimization, and interesting projects you have worked on, in your free time or at work.

The talks our audience enjoys the most are engaging, informative, and showcase the speaker’s expertise on the topic.

We encourage diversity in our speaker lineup and welcome proposals from people of all backgrounds and experience levels.

Please include a detailed outline of your presentation to help our review committee evaluate your talk.

We recommend reading Dave Cheney’s guide on how to write a successful conference proposal.
