Hi there, I saw that Aditya Mukerjee (@chimeracoder) is doing a workshop on Go in Boston. The page says they are looking for TAs to volunteer.

Thanks, Matthew! We got an amazing response so I think we're all set for TAs now. But we still have slots for attendees - if you know anyone who wants to learn Go, this should be a really fun way to do it!

I could use some good examples of personal web pages/blogs that look nice. I need to redesign my own, which is stale.

This is a little bit surprising. I would expect both of these print statements to have identical output.

Aha! From the package docs: "Anonymous struct fields are usually marshaled as if their inner exported fields were fields in the outer struct, subject to the usual Go visibility rules amended as described in the next paragraph. An anonymous struct field with a name given in its JSON tag is treated as having that name, rather than being anonymous."

Someone did this gimmick in the 80s on "Puttin' on the Hits". It was lip sync. At least, I think this happened; I can't find video of this anywhere.

I'm currently halfway through www.nand2tetris.org, which is going far easier than I expected. 

Next on my list is a tardy start on http://marsyas.cs.uvic.ca/mirBook/course/

Well, maybe this will help someone.

The ShutUp Chrome extension that hides comment sections from the Internet will also hide comments inside structs and interfaces from godoc.

Don't ask how many days it took me to figure this out.
