Mithun: How did Gophercon come to be?
Gautam: Last year 2014, we had one of our directors at Josh Software, Satish Talim who had gone to Gophercon, Denver, that is the first Go(programming language) conference in the world. When he was there, he realized that there is a lot of boost for this and since Josh Software was already making some kind of foray into Go at that time, but we were just experimenting. He came back and said that we should do this conference here. We were already organizing conferences in India like RubyCon India, DevOpsDay and Deccan Ruby Conf, he said let’s do this. Now, Go Conference in India was a big risk because we had no idea what the response would be. But we took on the challenge and we got that going. It took us about eight months into preparing and it was the second conference in the world that happened after Gophercon in Denver, at this scale of about 350+ people coming in.
