To celebrate the release of Go 1.6 we’re organising a world wide release party on February the 17th, 2016.
Hang on, did you say Go 1.6 ships on the 17th of February?
Nope! Go 1.6 ships when it’s ready. With that said, things are looking pretty good for a mid Feb release.
Using the power of software estimation, a date was plucked from the aether that happened to coincide with several meetups that were already in the works.
Sounds awesome, how can you get involved?
- If you host a Go user group or meetup, schedule a meetup on the 17th of Feb and celebrate with Gophers around the world.
- If you’re a member of a Go user group or meetup, pester your organiser and let them know you’d like to participate.
