LDN *Virtual* Talks Apr 2021 — Red Badger Takeover

Tuesday, 27th April, Online Meetup

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


The Rust London User Group is happy to announce our second takeover event of 2021. These meetups will serve as a showcase for a particular dev team or company building with Rust.

Our Takeover guests are Red Badger:

Red Badger help you bring innovative products and services to market through nimble and robust ways of working. They work with various companies across a wide array of industries to build quality digital products quickly.

Rust London will be giving 4 developers from the Red Badger team the floor to share what they are currently building with Rust and what they aspire to do with the language in the future.

Cynic: rusty graphql

Graeme Couper shares the story of how he came to write a new Rust GraphQL client library, the evolution of it’s API, and how it’s being used in a national chicken restaurant chain.

Wasmcloud, a next-gen platform in Rust and WASM

Building and managing distributed systems with microservices today is fraught with complexity and hidden cost. We look at how platforms are evolving, wasmcloud as a next generation platform, and the part that Rust and Webassembly have to play in blurring the distinction between the cloud and the edge. We’ll get our hands dirty and build a wasmcloud cluster on a couple of Raspberry Pi machines, and walk through running some example workloads written in Rust.
