A nice little introduction to Go.

Need to practice speaking very slightly more slowly. Wasn't ridiculously fast, but was quite a pace.

Maybe need to break talk up into sections slightly more, with a clearer break between the sections, as the parts seemed to roll into each other.

Code on slides needs to be waaaay clearer. I could read it, but only because I was directly in front and quite close to the screen.

More time could have been spent on introducing channels as it's probably the most important bit of the talk. A clear "why" channels exist to begin with, then a really trivial example e.g. using the same function twice, rather than inline definition of a function, and then finally a useful example of why you would actually want to use channels.
