Belfast Gophers Logo


Belfast Gophers, aka The Go Belfast User Group (GBUG), are a Belfast-based community for anyone interested in the Go programming language. Belfast Gophers held their first Meetup on Wednesday, 22 June, 2016, and since then the group has grown to over 500 members. We typically hold a Meetup once a month at Teamwork's amazing offices. All Meetups are free, and typically comprise a number of talks and socialising, with food and drink provided. We live-stream all Meetups via zoom thanks to GoBridge. Recordings of previous meet-ups are available on our YouTube channel, where you can also find an archive of previous recordings.

Membership of Belfast Gophers is managed via our Meetup page; everyone is welcome! We also have an active Twitter feed and our members are active in the #belfast, Gophers Slack (sign-up here).

If you'd like a t-shirt with our logo, many have asked for this, we have a Redbubble store. We don't take any profit on any of the items you'll only be paying Redbubble's fees.
