GopherCon 2016 - A recap

I had the opportunity to attend GopherCon 2016 in Denver. It's been an amazing week at the Colorado Convention Center.


I attended to very interesting talks during the two days of the actual GopherCon. Here is a recap of several impressed talks:


Understanding nil - Francesc Campoy

The opening keynote was by Francesc Campoy who doesn't need any introduction because he is the one of the Google Cloud Platform Podcast Hosts. He started his talks about understanding nil in Golang. Please check it out to understand what nil is.

Go for Data Science - Daniel Whitenack

Data Scientist codes Python to analyze some data and modeling. Go for Data Science tells that it's possible to code Golang for analyzing.
