Issues » 36


Welcome to Go Newsletter Issue #36. dotGo was a great experience, and it's good to see that videos of talks are starting to appear.

Over the last few weeks, I've realised that finding the time to make Go Newsletter a more regular occurence is unlikely on my part. You've probably noticed that I don't keep to a regular schedule, preferring roughly two issues a month. I think we can do better, so I've been talking to a couple of people about doing just that. Stay tuned — we hope to announce something good soon.
