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.
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.
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.
