Description
The second installment of GoCon Canada will be coming to downtown Toronto on May 25-26, 2020. GoCon is committed to building an accessible and inclusive conference with high-quality conversations that will grow the Go community in the Greater Toronto Area. We’re scaling up to two days this year, which means more slots for awesome Go talks! We anticipate a diverse audience, with various degrees of experience with programming in Go. We want to build a single-track program that is largely technical and focused on the Go language and ecosystem, with a few introductory-level talks and cultural discussions mixed in.
