Learn to play Go

A session at Strange Loop 2011

Monday 19th September, 2011

3:30pm to 4:20pm (CST)

This session will be an introduction to the ancient Chinese game of Go [not the language]. Rich Hickey will illustrate the rules of Go and there will then be an opportunity to play Go with others and ask questions about strategy while you play. Go is at once both the simplest and most complex of all games. Two players alternate in placing black and white stones on a ruled board, with the aim of surrounding territory. Like software development, Go is about building, not destroying. What you’ll learn in minutes will reward a lifetime of study with intellectual challenge and fun, including profound lessons in how to create things with immutable (immovable) components.
