This is the CFP for the first of the two: gceu24a in Athens on Feb 6-8 2024.
It closes on the end of Sunday Nov 19.

Our goal is to bring together Go developers from all over the world to share their knowledge, experiences, and ideas. We are looking for engaging and informative talks that cover a wide range of topics related to Go programming.

  • Thu Feb 8: Talks Day

Other relevant dates:

Some housekeeping notes:

  • While the event is hybrid, all the talks are in-person.
  • You are welcome to submit for both, however the same talk will definitely not be chosen for both conferences.
  • We follow the Go Code of Conduct. By joining us, you agree to do the same.
