The Developer Experience Working Group
10 April 2017
Over the last several years, Go's audience has shifted from early
adopters to mainstream users. Today, our users come from a wide
variety of backgrounds, experiences, and expectations. The needs
of users are growing faster than the Go project can currently address
them. To streamline the experience for first-time Go users,
we've created the Developer eXperience Working Group (DXWG).

A secondary goal of the working group is to better understand how to
involve the Go community in charting Go’s future. We hope that working

(user stories), reviewing contributions, and more. If you are
interested in any of our current areas of focus, please subscribe to the
