Do you remember our post back in February of 2013, where we outlined our plans for the year to come? It seems like our goals were reached.
Not only did we spread the word about #golang , but the results are obvious when looking at the sheer numbers: According to the semi-official list of Golang Meetup Groups, we are now the 4th largest Go User Group world-wide.
At the DevFest Berlin 2013, we gave our first Beginner's Course and saw a surprising amount of Go programs being shown at the Hackathon on the last day. We'd like to think that a few Gophers were born on that weekend.
Our informal meetups were very well received and have been an incubator for many side projects which have later been presented at one of our meetups. Our formal events with in-depth talks and guest speakers from different companies and countries have been growing as well.
Our biggest meetup on 2012 was when visited us with 34 Gophers attending. In 2013, Andrew visited us again and drew in 75 attendees. A new record.
Let's see if we can get even bigger.
spring has arrived and we better welcome it or it might leave just as quickly. That's why we decided to do a sauf up in April.
Our last meetup was very well received, especially our discussion at the end about migrating to Go and how to convince your DevOps. Who says we can't do that over a glass of the drink of your choice?
Since we will be making reservations at the bar, please try to make your RSVP reliable.
Looking forward to seeing you all,

To be honest: Our goals haven't changed.
We still want to grow. We want to explore the versatility of Go and invite speakers with new and uncommon use-cases for Go.
showed us one of these uncommon use-cases at our last meetup, where he wrote the firmware for a Parrot AR Drone in Go. We need more of that.
Our learning framework Pixelpixel will be developed further and additional Beginner's Events are planned.
We work hard to keep up with our monthly schedule and enjoy having both formal and informal meetups.
Since the last year, Go has been picked up and put to use by big and well-known companies. We don't think we have seen the end just yet and will try to invite speakers to talk about the newest thing with #golang .
