Welcome To BayPIGgies

We are the Silicon Valley-San Francisco Bay Area Python Interest Group. No membership is required and beginners are welcome!

Next Meeting:  April 23, 2015 @ LinkedIn, Mtn. View


Topic: Go for Pythonistas


Speaker: Francesc Campoy (Developer Advocate, Google)



Go is very similar to Python and also differs in some essential points. This talk will discuss inheritance, duck typing, monkey patching, decorators, etc. in a statically typed language.


Francesc Campoy Flores is a Developer Advocate for Go and the Cloud at Google. He joined the Go team in 2012 and since then he has written some considerable didactic resources and traveled the world attending conferences, organizing live courses, and meeting fellow gophers. He joined Google in 2011 as a backend software engineer working mostly in C++ and Python, but it was with Go that he rediscovered how fun programming can be.  You can find him on twitter as @francesc.
