Google built Go for internal programming back in 2007 to improve scalability, productivity, and resource consumption. Since releasing the open-source language to the public it’s been adopted by some of the world’s largest tech companies. Science and technology have always gone hand in hand which is why CERN uses Go to help drive their mission: accelerating science.

Now Google is teaming up with CERN in a challenge to gophers around the world: use Go to build and improve software in two tracks.

The repository maintainers are excited to see how you can use Go to improve these groundbreaking projects. See full details and resources for the CERN Collaboration Track.

Build with the brand new Generics feature in either track to compete for the Best Use of Generics $2,000 USD bonus prize!
