This event is brought to you by Go Singapore. GoSG is a meetup for the Go programming enthusiasts in Singapore.

Name: André Eriksson (Founder,, Ex-staff Engineer, Spotify)
Topic: Using Go to Naturally Express Higher-level Distributed Systems Concepts

Through the power of static analysis and code generation, André'll show you how we can write programs that look like regular Go code, that when compiled turn into fully-fledged distributed systems.

André is the founder of Encore - a Go backend framework for building distributed systems. He's also an ex-Spotify Staff Engineer and a part-time puppy caretaker.
