GopherCon 2018 - Go for Information Displays

conference, golang, gophercon2018, notes

These are some notes from my experiences at the GopherCon 2018. I don’t expect these will be laid out in any particularly useful way; I am mostly taking them so I can remember some of the bits I found most useful in the future.


  • generates svg to an io.Writer
  • functions correspond to elements
  • comes with svgplay to see pictures as you go


  • comes w/ raspberry pi


  • package for presentations
  • write markup that generates pdf, png, svg, or openvg
  • layout is %-based, and will scale to canvas

Why Go for Visualization?

  • func passing, io.Writer, io.Reader
  • Lots of nice built-ins
