Community Outreach Working Group

5 September 2017

Announcing the Go

The Go project has grown considerably with over half a million users and

community members all over the world. To date all community oriented activities

have been organized by the community with minimal involvement from the Go

project. We greatly appreciate these efforts.

After talking to many community organizers we have heard consistent

feedback that they would like better collaboration between organizers and

the Go project. We are forming the Community outreach Working Group (CWG)

to help support these community efforts.

The CWG Mission

The mission of the CWG is to act as a conduit between the broader Go

community, it’s organizers and the Go project. The CWG will help provide

the structures and community management necessary to create an online and

in person community that is enjoyable and rewarding to participate in. The

CWG leadership represents the Go project in these efforts.

The CWG is responsible for:

  • Defining programs to facilitate deeper collaboration across the community.
  • Facilitating the coordination of Go events
  • Establishing growth and expansion plans for the community
  • Project exposure and accessibility
  • Ecosystem Development


Plans for Action

The CWG has an open GitHub repo we’ve created for complete transparency

of our efforts. We have various GitHub projects which are acting as our

initiatives. Each project has a variety of issues tied to them

with assignees from our Leadership team and our members.
