Go Without Wires

Programming Bluetooth Using Go and TinyGo

Go programmers now have access to an entire world of Bluetooth devices, the most popular Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) standard ever created, all using our favorite programming language, thanks to the aptly named "Go Bluetooth" (

Developers can write code to control Bluetooth Low Energy devices from standard Go programs running on desktop operating systems.

In addition, developers can create Bluetooth Low Energy peripheral devices running bare-metal on chips made by Nordic Semiconductor, by using "Go Bluetooth" with TinyGo.

This means you can write the code for both sides of your Bluetooth Low Energy wireless application all using Go.

In this talk I will explain the concepts and show code by programming several live objects.
