ISSUE #8

Welcome to Go Newsletter Issue #8. I've tended to wait until there's a good batch of articles before sending this out, but based on feedback it's probably good for it to be a little more frequent, so that things like event listings are more timely. As ever, if I've missed anything, feel free to reply to this email or find me on twitter — Matt
