Hello! For my introduction, I’m new-ish to Go (perhaps just under a year now), but I’ve been working on web apps for years
I can definitely lend a hand on front-end work, API-level stuff, and the rest of the full-stack gamut. I’m no designer, but I’ve been working on web apps alongside designers for a while so I’m happy to lend my perspective

@TheDahv similar situation here! I'm hoping this to be a good learning experience for me while I try to help
Welcome!

awesome! thanks everyone for jumping in
we should have a rough-in framework in a day or two for us to all start adding features to

Thanks :) For anybody who is going to spend significant time on the front-end, it will be interesting to see what we land on. I’ve not seen firm leading opinions on building web apps with Go

@bketelsen Currently we have two chat rooms, this one and the one in gophers.slack.com, it's a bit confusing don't you think?
go-kit was using gitter but they finally moved to slack btw

I’ve taken to the following paradigm on my personal apps: “API’s and back-end concerns in Go. Serve templates and static assets with Go. Use Node.js build tools for front-end stuff in another folder or another project entirely."

I like gitter because it's just one click away for newcomers, but gophers.slack.com seems the best way for gophers
13 of 21 members online in slack, 3 of 20 here

I haven’t used it for active development before, but seeing as it has tight GitHub integration and this group is intended for development coordination, it seems to make sense
Rather, I’d be interested in exploring what Gitter can do
But, I also use Slack and hang out in the gophers group

i like the gitter integration with github, it's very nice
but I agree having 2 is confusing
