A look back at 2013
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 +Andrew Gerrand
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. #gdg
