    Book Club > Get Programming With Go

    All Gophers and curious software professionals are welcome to come discuss Go and related topics.
    Go is a Google-funded language for massively-scalable distributed systems that is statically typed and compiled. It has quickly stabilized and is running head-to-head with C++, Java, C#, etc. (The Computer Language Benchmarks Game - Go). However, a larger-than-expected portion of new Gophers is made up of dynamic/interpreted language users who tend to be seeking relief from the cruft in their current languages and/or a more clear future within the horizontally-growing landscape of modern computing.
    If you're building web apps, designing APIs, thrive on scalability, or you're simply curious about this fun new(ish) language, let's meetup.

    Ruh-Roh, Runes!

    Women Who Go Toronto is a community of women and non-binary Go (Golang) developers committed to learning and sharing intermediate and advanced Go programming topics in an open and inclusive environment. 

    Is this meetup for me?

    Women Who Go Toronto Mascot
    Our gopher friend, Meg, is designed by Ellen Hsiang. The inspiration behind this mascot comes from the well-known photo of software pioneer Margaret Hamilton standing next to her team's tower of code for the Apollo Project. She was a champion of computer programming as a legitimate discipline, and is credited with coining the term software engineering.
    Behind Meg is the distinctive Toronto City Hall. In contrast to that other famous but pointier Toronto landmark, City Hall is a curvy harmony of parts. Two towers wrap around the saucer-like council chamber, hinting at standing figures gathering for an intimate chat. It is also the literal meeting place for City Council. Both the building and the meetings are open to the public.
    Passionate software engineers, gophers, and a welcoming community? What else but Women Who Go Toronto.

    Code of Conduct
    All members agree to adhere to the Women Who Go Code of Conduct.
