My Good Friend Rust - Topconf 2017

by Matthias Endler

Published October 5, 2017 in Programming

Rust is more than a Systems Programming language; it's a new way of thinking about low-level code.· It has strong safety and concurrency guarantees without sacrificing performance. It provides powerful abstractions that make Systems Programming both, easier and more fun.
Let me show you what's in for you and why you should learn Rust, even though you might be a Web-Developer. The growing ecosystem of Rust libraries and the steadily improving IDE support will help a lot in getting started. I'll show you some practical code examples, tell you how trivago uses Rust and give an overview of the road ahead.
