Back again with another update. Day two started off strong. It was tough to choose, but I opted to do Getting Started with Go and Continuous Delivery. There were definitely some other cool tutorials I wish I could have done such as Zero to Cloud with @NetflixOSS.
A cool free e-book to download OSCON 2014 speaker interviews
Eagerly awaiting another year of open source wonders, the Opensource.com community caught up with a handful of notable OSCON speakers to gather behind-the-scenes stories about their passions for open source. This book collects the interviews we conducted.
On to becoming a Gopher.
Steve Francia of MongoDB talked about his origin and how he began using Go and his baby is Hugo -> http://hugo.spf13.com/. The slides and tutorial are all online and you can do everything at your own pace. This was an awesome session and Steve did a fantastic job explaining *why* we need Go, the problems it solves, and how to build our first application. If you do follow along with these slides, it could take you anywhere from 2-8 hours to do it. It's 250 slides and it was ALOT to take in. Everyone works at a different pace. Me, I was SLOWWWWW. I had GoClipse installed. I spent the first 15 minutes trying to get Go working correctly there. One of the guys from Google came over and said, never use Eclipse. So I jumped over to Sublime and worked furiously to catch up. First lesson learned. I'm going to supplement this with the Go tutorial on pluralsight.
