Intro to Rust--Learning to Write Safe Programs With Less Code

Eric Rasmussen

[geek:2]

Most programming languages either come with a runtime system to manage memory or require you to manage it in your code. Rust has a unique memory model that makes the compiler work for you, handling all those checks before you ever run your program. You can even compile your Rust programs straight to WebAssembly to run in your browser.

Come learn more about what makes Rust unique and how it compares to other modern languages.

About the Speaker:

Eric Rasmussen writes a lot of code in a lot of languages, is a programming consultant, and manages a devops team at newcars.com.
