The GoWest Conference was created with two main goals:

  • To highlight the local talent and expertise in engineering with the Go programming language.

  • To bring world-renowned Go speakers to the area.

This conference is meant to service the Rocky Mountain West area (Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Idaho). All are welcome to attend and get to know the talented developers & amazing companies we have in the area. We are planning a hybrid conference. This means we will have attendees at a physical location as well as online. We will allow both remote and in-person speakers. For in-person attendees and speakers we will have protocols in place to keep everyone in attendance safe from COVID-19.
