Mat Ryer

Engineering Director @ Grafana Labs

Mat Ryer has been coding since he was six years old where he would copy code out of computer magazines with his father before hacking away at the programs to see what might happen. That same spirit lead him to start programming in Go before its v1 release (when os.Error was still a thing) after falling in love with its simplicity and elegance. He’s a regular contributor to open-source projects (Testify, Silk, BitBar and writes about Go on his blog ( In 2015 he published Go Programming Blueprints and is following it up with a Second Edition. He can often be seen and heard speaking at conferences around the world, making jokes where, out of sheer politeness and respect, the audience remain absolutely silent
