Office Hours
Expo Hall (Table A)

Matt would like to have have an informal chat about Java developers learning Go:

  • Why would a Java developer want to learn the Go programming language?
  • How does idiomatic use of Go interfaces encourage me to structure my programs differently (as opposed to Java’s object-oriented constructs)?
  • How does Go’s built-in concurrency features make writing concurrent software accessible to mere mortals?
