|9.00 AM||Herding Gophers - Aaron Cruz
Friday 20th February, 2015 9:00 am to 9:25 am (IST)
At this moment in time, Go is most likely not the first language of the people who write it. You can often see the traces of other languages in code written by people who aren't proficient in your languages of choice. For example it is Ruby but it looks and feels like Java.
Like herding gophers, it is easy to force something you don't understand to do what you are comfortable with. The trick is to learn the beauty of the language and let its powers shape your thinking and style.

|1.00 PM||Go Faster: Optimising Go Programs - Jason Moiron
Go Faster: Optimising Go Programs
Friday 20th February, 2015 1:00 pm to 1:25 pm (IST)
This 25-minute english-language talk will be an exploration in various optimisation techniques we have attempted at DataDog in the past year of using Go in production. It will cover things like use of the Go profiler, the go test benchmarks, runtime behavior, cgo, compiler optimisation/inlining, go's asm support, and some implementation details for maps, channels, the runtime and the select statement. It's intended for intermediate to experienced gophers, although beginners who are more or less familiar with the language features will certainly be able to follow along.
Though much of the talk is about optimising at a low level, there will be an exploration of how to structure programs to make them easier to profile, reason about, and optimise. There will be benchmarks as well as exploration of the behavior of the underlying code explaining their results. This will not stray too far into the philosophy of composition; it will be mostly technical, with only a few unremarkable but important overarching points. People should hopefully come away with understanding something new about the implementation of the Go language itself, how it impacts the runtime speed of Go programs, and perhaps how these might change in future.

|4.00 PM||Principles of designing Go APIs with channels - Alan Shreve
Principles of designing Go APIs with channels
Friday 20th February, 2015 4:00 pm to 4:25 pm (IST)
Channels are the preferred mechanism for safely sharing state between concurrent goroutines. They are a powerful abstraction that makes concurrent code easy to reason about and simple to write. Most Go resources, however, have little to say about how to design APIs that use channels. This talk will discuss the principles both how and when it is appropriate to use channels in Go APIs drawing on examples from the standard library, official Go repositories, and more.

Closing Keynote - The Roots of Go
Friday 20th February, 2015 4:50 pm to 5:35 pm (IST)
Every once in a while, a new programming language comes up that fundamentally changes how we think about computing. But even more so often, the core ideas behind a "new" language are hinged upon ideas that were first propounded by languages or systems which are much older; f.ex. first-class functions originated in the '60s but have become mainstream only recently.

Opening Keynote - Embracing the Standard Library
Saturday 21st February, 2015 8:00 am to 8:45 am (IST)
New Go developers follow a typical pattern: Find Go. Start learning Go. Pull in a bunch of external dependencies into their projects. While this pattern allows good software to be created, it often neglects all the great software the Go standard library contains. In this talk, we'll take a look at the standard library from the eyes of a beginner. We'll evaluate built in solutions versus external dependencies. Next, we'll review when it's appropriate to use external dependencies, Finally we'll leave with the knowledge of how to use the tools we were given rather along with external tools to help us create great software.

Concurrent, High-Performance Data-Access With Go
Saturday 21st February, 2015 9:10 am to 9:35 am (IST)
With the advent of real-time data processing systems, the move to high performance databases has effected major design changes to technology stack of Internet enterprises. Not only the languages are simpler and more expressive, but the move to asynchronous micro-services and leaner architectures has necessitated newer design paradigms, in which the application becomes a more involved part of the data storage system. Aerospike has been among the fore-runners of integrating a more involved part of the data access library in its Smart Clients. Go, by providing a non-blocking runtime and native concurrency features in the language, has proved a natural pick. In this presentation, I will discuss how we employ gopher armies to keep data streaming in our Smart Client design.
Sunil Sayyaparaju, Director of Product and Technology at Aerospike, has over 10 years experience working on different types of SQL RDBMS solutions, such as single machine (monolithic), in-memory, distributed shared-disk, and distributed shared-nothing architectures with emphasis in transaction management, storage, access, performance tuning, and recovery areas. Sunil currently leads Aerospike's Bangalore office, working on their distributed shared-nothing NoSQL solution. Aerospike is a high-performance, self-balancing, immediately consistent, distributed NoSQL database. Aerospike also has an add on product for replication across data-centers over WAN which supports different complex topologies.

High performance git infrastructure with Go
Saturday 21st February, 2015 1:30 pm to 1:55 pm (IST)
At Code Climate, we analyze thousands of git repositories every day. People give us access to their code as we sweep secured copies synchronized with their remotes at all times. We use these copies to extract meaningful information to process.
Over time, managing all these repositories turned into a single point of failure in our platform. This talk is about how we used Go to turn this single point of failure into a reliable, distributed and scalable platform. We'll talk about how we use projects like Groupcache, Libgit2 and Vulcan. We'll also talk about why we chose protocol buffers as a communication layer between git and the rest of Code Climate.

Saturday 21st February, 2015 1.55 pm to 2:20 pm (IST)
This talk focuses on a framework we're currently building to simplify writing programs for devices such as Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard, Intel Edison and similar.
We're moving to a future where "Internet enabled devices" (or Internet of Things) would start to play a major part in our daily lives. However, writing your own custom programs and controlling them to do what you want is not so simple & straightforward. You either have to deal with a programming toolset of a bygone era or need to depend on a proprietary SDK that would only work on a specific device.

|2.20 PM||Go for Simulations in Wireless Research - Dr. Sendil Devar
Go for Simulations in Wireless Research
Saturday 21st February, 2015 2:20 pm to 2:45 pm (IST)
Go has been attracting a lot of attention mostly for web applications. Research communities dealing with a lot of simulations usually don't use advanced programming techniques for thier work. They usually rely on third party tools like Matlab, octave and R or native languages like C/C++. Especially, in the area of wireless research, to capture a 1 minute snapshot of a 4G communication system of 500+ users and 50 base-stations typically takes about a weeks time. In a system level simulation, there are lot of functionalities that can be executed concurrently. The simplicity of Go's concurrency can help accelerate the coding and simulation times.
