    • Come join the one year anniversary celebration of our meetup, by joining your fellow gophers in our first ever round of lightening talks.
      Lightning talks are very short (typically around 5 minutes) presentations about a very specific topic, such as a particular Go library, or perhaps a plugin for your favorite editor, or anything else related to Go and development in Go.
      If you have not presented yet, this is a great opportunity to get up on the stage and share something with everyone!
      Speaking of that, I am looking for people to give these talks, so if you are interested, please send me a sentence about the the topic of your talk.

      I will update this announcement with the full list of talks as we get closer.
