In the community
Daniel Petisme forked Groovy’s GVM to support Golo. This opened interesting discussions between the authors of GVM and jEnv, and they may collaborate to provide a common solution for the JVM runtimes and languages, which would be just awesome!
Philippe Charrière will do a Golo talk at the Montpellier JUG.

Sylvain Desgrais opened a pull request a while back for supporting native code in Golo a while back. You could help Sylvain as the feature is interesting but not finished yet.
Until next time, have fun with Golo and let us know the kind of fun things you are doing with it!
