Plenty going on at this month's Rust London User Group! Distributed systems, Attack on Rust and Intecture 2, there's something for everyone, don't miss it!
Building Message and Event based APIs using Muon - Rust Edition
Distributed systems are hard! As microservices has become a more and more popular architectural style, we have started to develop techniques to handle the highly distributed nature of the systems we are building.
Core to this is the concept of the API, a strong software contract. What form should this API take? Muon lets you design and build message based APIs that are far richer than simple RPC approaches.
In this talk I will introduce the Muon project, show some demos in the currently supported languages and then discuss our experiments and work with Rust and the future direction of the project.
This will cover why we have chosen Rust, what we are going to be using it for and how you can be involved.
David Dawson takes his passion for design, architecture and philosophy to all their clients, drinks their coffee and gives them Microservice platforms and systems in return.
Exploiting Rust for Fun and Profit
Interested in learning more about debugging Rust programs? Check out this with Diane Hosflet at Rust London User Group!
This talk will cover attempts to recreate classic vulnerability attacks in Rust, and how Rust prevents them. As part of this, Diane Hosfelt'll be diving into gdb, so this should also give a good overview of debugging a Rust program.
Diane is a research engineer on Servo focused on security and networking. She studied math and computer science at Johns Hopkins, and is interested in usable security, formal verification for crypto, and cats.
Intecture 2: Tokio Drift
Check out this talk for a quick update on Intecture and it’s journey into asynchronous programming with Pete Hayes!
