Please register for the meetup if you’re going to attend!

On the day if you need any help with the meetup call Will on 07939 547 962.

The session

This month Lewis Marshall will be demonstrating how the Go encoding/json package makes handling JSON data and writing JSON schemas simple!

Before arriving

If you are bringing a laptop please charge it before arriving as we cannot guarantee plug sockets for all.

It would be useful to have Go installed on your laptops beforehand to save time and avoid any issues downloading Go on the venue’s WiFi.

To install Go, follow the relevant guide for your operating system:

You should now be able to run “go version” and see the version of Go you have installed. You might also want to familiarise yourself with Go a little by trying out the online tour.
