Go is a general-purpose programming language developed at Google. Go's
design is influenced by the C and Pascal lineage, but instead of
providing a conglomerate of features, Go takes a fresh look at the
essential mechanisms required for modern programming tasks. As a
result, Go has evolved to a compact language of surprising power. In
this presentation we give a brief introduction to Go, slightly slanted
towards programmers with a C/C++ background, and then talk about
particularly interesting aspects of Go.

Robert Griesemer is a senior engineer at Google, Inc., and one of the
initial designers of the Go programming language. Prior to Go, Robert
worked on code generation for Google's V8 JavaScript engine, the
design and implementation of the domain-specific language Sawzall, the
Java HotSpot virtual machine, and the Strongtalk system. He once wrote
a vectorizing compiler for the Cray Y-MP, and an interpreter for APL.
He is a fan of things that "just work". Robert holds a Ph.D. in
computer science from ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
