London Gophers - Building Instagram Filters With Go

I gave a talk at the London Gophers meetup about building image filters like those found in Instagram. This talk covers what I learnt while building a reference implementation of a simple rendering engine using pure Go, with no dependencies. I cover various kinds of lookup tables, storage formats and although useful… why it’s probably a bad idea doing this in Go.

There is source code available at if you’d like to try this out on your own images. You can also view the slides over here.
