GoBridge is the newest member of the BridgeFoundry umbrella organization. We build bridges to educate underrepresented communities to teach technical skills and to foster diversity in Go.
Our core mission is to enable minorities in tech to use Go as a tool to learn and teach programming and, ultimately, to empower underrepresented groups in tech to help increase diversity in the Go community.
We believe education is most effective when it is tailored to and provided by local communities. We are dedicated to growing and supporting local teams of individuals and companies who will have ownership in the work they do. We are also dedicated to developing in-depth and idiomatic training materials. Our workshops are targeted at smaller, local Go communities, and not necessarily directly at the global Go community. But we believe that, as each individual the Go community strengthens, the collective Go community will, in turn, strengthen as well.
GoBridge has the responsibility of being the steward for several online Go sites. We work with an incredible team of administrators to make sure these sites are inclusive to the largest number of communities and viewpoints, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible.
Gophers Slack is a thriving, real-time messaging community. If you are looking to get immediate answers to questions or join in conversation about Go with other Gophers, this is the place to be.
Go Forum is a new site where ideas, views, questions and answers can be exchanged and discussed. It also allows for all the content that is discussed to be indexed and searchable from the Web. If you are looking for historical answers to your questions, this is the place to search.
Organize a Workshop
Want to get involved? Organize a workshop in your area! We are here to help you every step of the way.
Start by creating an issue in the workshops repo (issues represent upcoming and potential events, and hold to-do lists for each).
Create one issue for each workshop you are planning. Please include a possible date and location. You can always edit the issue when you know more.
The GoBridge team of community managers will be with you every step of the way to help you put on a successful event. So, join us!
Become a sponsor
Most GoBridge workshops need some level of support. This can range from offering a space, paying for food or even travel expenses for trainers.
