Meet up

State of Rust 2016 and How to create webservices in Rust 


Thursday, 16th June at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by Rust London User Group in June 2016

In this meetup we have two talks on State of Rust 2016 
 by Alex Crichton and How to create webservices in Rust 
by Maciej Dziardziel.

State of Rust 2016

An exploration of the Rust project and community since the 1.0 stable release in May 2015 followed by a taste of what's to come from Rust in 2016. We'll take a look at incremental compilation in the compiler, a futures implementation for async I/O, and tooling updates especially around formatting and IDE support.

Rust LR parsers with Menhir

Menhir is a well-known LR parser generator for OCaml with a lot of advanced features. In this talk, I will present the Rust backend that I wrote for Menhir, and how to use it to write LR parsers in Rust.

How to create webservices in Rust 


Maciej Dziardziel

Backend developer, focused on python and fulltext search.

Tango: Literate Programming In Rust

The `tango` crate is a tool for seamlessly transitioning back and forth between editing a markdown-based presentation of one's code and editing Rust source code that is actually fed to the compiler. I will describe how I have used `tango` to author multiple web-based slideshow presentations advertising use of Rust (including this presentation of `tango` itself), while ensuring that all of the code snippets being presented still compile and passes their embedded unit tests.
