Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers who want to start programming devices using Go




TinyGo takes the Go programming language to the “final frontier” where it could not go before…running directly on microcontrollers like Arduino, the BBC’s micro:bit, and more.

Ron Evans introduces you to TinyGo, a new miniature version of the Go language that uses the LLVM compiler toolchain to create native code that can run directly even on the smallest of computing devices. You’ll even see some live-coding demos of flying objects.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Basic knowledge of Go

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to use Go to program really tiny devices
