Speakers' biographies and abstracts:

Eggya Chiquita is a software and a co-organiser of @womenwhogolndn

"So, you’ve heard about Go and want to give it a try?
This is a fast-track on ‘getting your machine up and ready for Go’.
We’ll be talking about setting up, common tooling, resources and maybe even get a Go server running."

Carl Peto

"I have spent 20 or 30 years working with all kinds of computer tech I could get my hands on. From big machines back in the 90s down to little shiny phones you hold in your hand nowadays. Writing iOS since pretty much the first iPhones, my day job is Swift fanatic with a dash of objective C and a side interest in "IoT". I'm currently working at a start up specialising in high tech IoT projects. And Arduino and Pi have been my side interest for ages. Half my flat is connected to one prototype or another.

I started the Swift compiler for Arduino UNO when I had drunk far too much coffee one day and I've been doing it ever since."
