LDN *Virtual* Talks March 2021

Tuesday, 30th March, Online Meetup

This meetup was organised by Rust London User Group in March 2021

Overview

The Rust London User Group is pleased to announce our March LDN Talks community showcase. After an exciting beginning to the year with a special takeover event, we shift the focus back onto individuals within the Rust London community. This month we have talks from 3 London Rusteaceans who will be sharing their projects and learnings.

Project Documentation with Rust and mdBook

Documentation is so important for software development. It's one of the areas where FOSS projects receive contributions. This is reflected in improvements in the documentation and availability in other languages. The Rust project developed mdbook, a command-line tool used for publishing the official documentation. Through this talk, you will know more about this tool, how you can use it and where to publish your project documentation.

Ergonomic Error Handling with Rust

Rust diverges from most mainstream languages in its approach to error handling. This talk takes a fairly deep dive into Rust's approach to it, discussing the pros and cons.

Senyo Simpson

Senyo is an odd mix of data scientist and software engineer working at Aerobotics, an agri-tech startup based in Cape Town, South Africa.

TEDD Talk (Target Environment Driven Development)

Rustc and Cargo offer a few options to target different environments. In this talk, Max will share how he leverages Rustc configuration and Cargo features to prototype on different hardware, platforms and modules. For rapid prototyping across platforms he introduces a CICD feedback loop — a process he has coined 'Target Environment Driven Development.'
