A golang hands-on workshop was organized under meetup group Practical Data Science on May 6th, 2017. It was run up event for Devconf India 2017. Around 60 people turned up. Baiju’s, who was workshop instructor, started with introduction of golang.

He carried audience through the setup of golang SDK, basic golang semantics, datatypes, control structures, concurrency and other advanced constructs.

Workshop course material can be found here.

Me(SurajN), SurajD and Zeeshan volunteered for the event. We helped attendees for installing golang and also helped them while they were solving exercises given by Baiju.

At around 1:15pm, we broke off for lunch.

People were eager to learn golang and the workshop was very interactive.

Post lunch Bargava explained how golang and Data community converge and what could be the possible future of Data Science in his view.

Baiju’s passion for teaching golang was immense and that inspired folks to follow along.

Meanwhile, SurajD announced Kubernetes 101 meetup which is going to happen on 20th May. Feel free to ping us if you have a venue for this event.

Thanks to Bargava & Baiju for organizing such an awesome workshop, thanks to Red Hat for sponsoring Venue and food.

Stay tuned for upcoming meetups.
