Highlights of Google Go

I thought that it was a very nice talk. It was simple, to the point. It expressed a lot of the unique ideas about the language in a way that was easy to understand.

Most talks are plagued with the fact that the speaker has trouble building a bridge between the current state of their knowledge on the subject and the audience's knowledge. In my experience, this holds doubly true for talks about programming languages.

I felt like Remon avoided this trap entirely. Well done, that.

I would have liked to see some more complex code examples at the end, just to get a feel for how it all went together. I wouldn't have liked a long / slow play-by-play. But, it would have helped me get a bit of a better feel for the language.

In addition, I think that a bit more time could have been spent explaining good / bad use-cases for Go.

All in all, it was a useful talk that was competently delivered.

Thanks for this talk! I liked how you compared it against other languages and presented the ideas behind Go.
Maybe some more real world examples would be nice: how do you exploit the concurrency model in the real world?, how to deal with the lack of generics? etc.

All in all great talk!
