GoSF is approaching 1200 members and comprised of CTOs, engineering heads, system architects, and developers from around the San Francisco Bay Area. (If there's a group more experienced with modern system architectures, we'd like to see it.)
• Talk 1: Andrew Gerrand, Google – The State of Go
• Talk 2: Derek Collison – Go at Apcera
• Talk 3: Evan Shaw – Go at Iron.io
• Talk 4: Blake Mizerany – Go at CoreOS
• Talk 5: Matt Aimonetti – Go at Splice
Evan will be talking about testing Go applications. Specifically, he'll go over the use of the testing/quick package, a useful tool in a developer's testing toolbox, demonstrate an extension to shrink test cases, and share how we're using it to find bugs in Iron.io's distributed architecture.
