GoGraz Go User Group Graz

Meetup on 15 February 2021

Since FOSDEM is just over we will most likely focus on some of the topics from there and also the changes that come with Go 1.16.

On the latter topic, Horst Gutmann will present some of his highlights that will be part of 1.16 in a quick talk.

We’re going to do that online. The platform for this hasn’t been selected yet but as a fallback we might simply go with https://meet.jit.si/gograz2020.

Schedule (more or less)

  • 19:00: Welcome
  • 19:10: Highlights of Go 1.16 (Horst Gutmann)
  • 19:40: Discussion (and lightning talk if someone wants to present something)

You can find all the details also on our Meetup page.


After the talk, Christoph gave us a great run-down of some of the nice things we can expect for 1.17:

  • Calling convention API and a register-based implementation that might in some cases perform 20% faster than the current standard.
  • Type parameters
  • GC stabilisations


As for the setup of next month’s meetup: We might switch over to Zoom as Jitsi, sadly, had some issues with sharing screens. A link will be posted as soon as we have one 🙂

You can also find this event on Meetup.com.
