Last week, most of the source{d} employees attended FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting.

For the second year in a raw, we were not only attending the conference but also helping to organize the Go and Machine Learning on Code (ML on Code)devrooms as well as a Beer Payback Happy Hour. At source{d], we’re big fans and users of go which is the language most of the components of our platform are written in.

This blog post is a recap of the talks that took place in the Go devroom. Knowing that the room capacity was approximately 500 attendees and most of the sessions were standing room only, I think we can all agree that the FOSDEM 2019 Go devroom was a big success. Big shout out to our very own Francesc Campoy and Maartje Eyskens for helping to select an amazing speaker lineup and taking care of the logistics.
