The engineering team at Yext is working with a new and exciting programming language called Go. We last hosted the Go community at the Yext HQ when one of the senior members of our engineering team, Rob Figueiredo (AKA RobFig), presented on a framework he created. On October 21st, we opened our doors once again to engineers interested in Go.
This time, we invited the Go Language Meetup Group to come by our offices with their computers for a casual hack night.
We had a great turnout of engineers with a great variety of projects to work on.
The attendees worked on Macs, PCs and one hacker even brought his own Raspberry Pi.
It was a great night of coding, exploring new technology and socializing. In addition to dinner and beer, we also played some ping pong.
This will certainly not be the last Go language event we host at Yext!
