Berlin, Germany


GopherCon Europe is the annual European conference for the Go programming language. This year, we are excited to hold 2 events:

  • gceu24a in Athens on Feb 6-8 2024
  • gceu24b in Berlin on June 17-20 2024

This is the CFP for the second of the two: gceu24b in Berlin on June 17-20 2024.
It closes on the end of Sunday Feb 18, for those who attend gceu24a and have so much fun they decide to submit a talk.

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.

Never been? On our YouTube channel you can find all the talks from the past years.

About the conference schedule:

  • Mon June 17: Community Day, with lightning talks and roundtable discussions
  • Tue June 18: Workshops Day
  • Wed June 19: Talks Day
  • Thu June 20: Talks Day

Friday June 21 is the summer solstice day, and Fête de la Musique day in Berlin, where music is celebrated all over the city. This event is not affiliated with the conference.

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.
