Our agenda will included:
- Andrew Gerrand, from the Go project at Google will be presenting the Go programming language being developed by a team at Google at Mountain View. Go is a new, experimental, open-source programming language. It has a succinct, clear syntax, a flexible (static) type system, and built-in concurrency primitives. It was built by a team at Google led by Rob Pike. This session will provide an overview of Go, explaining why it
exists, and what sets it apart from today's popular programming languages, and will show how it can be used to develop Google Wave robots. Until the introduction by Andrew, you can read more about go at the project's web site: http://golang.org/
- As this event was shortly following the Google I/O Developer conference, we focused on doing a recap of the most important announcements around HTML5, Android, Google App Engine, etc.
- GTUG Members presentations: tell the group what Google Technology you are using and demo your projects using these technologies
- GTUG Calendar
- Google Tech Roundup: quick recap' about what happened in the Google Tech Land since last meeting
- Google Tech Clinic: problems and solutions from our GTUG members
