Let’s Make The Go Remote Meetup Awesome!

Remote meetups can be an essential venue for the many who don’t have the opportunity to belong to or start a physical meetup so they can also be a part of our community. They also give those who want to share their knowledge and experience with others a way to reach a greater number of people.

Since starting the Go Remote Meetup recently, we have seen a strong interest in our events, as shown by the viewership statistics. Still, there is a long way to go until most Gophers and people interested in Go in general are aware this resource even exists.

In this short talk, I will show you how the Go Remote Meetup works, the talks that we have hosted in the past, and some viewership stats. With your help, we can schedule even more talks and build a worldwide community of remote meetups that anyone can attend.
