Sorry this is so late.

== West Yorkshire Python User Group Meeting - Thurs. 14 June ==

= Talk: Go From a Python Programmer's Perspective =

Go is a new language with a long pedigree. It was designed at Google
by Rob Pike (one of the designers of Unix) and Ken Thomson (one of the
designers of C). Go seems to be gaining traction as an environment for
developing simple, efficient applications.

Matt Goodall (@atomatt) will be introducing us to Go; showing us some
of the key aspects of the language and the runtime's concurrency
primitives by building a simple server application.

= Date and Time =

Thursday 14 May, talk from 7:30pm.

If you want to arrive before the talk, the venue will be open from
about 6.30. We will be finished by 9, and we will be going to the pub

= Location =

We will be holding the talk in the boardroom at the back of the ground
