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


Useful Rust

It has been said that the complexity of Rust’s type system is a high toll to pay just to avoid having a garbage collector. These arguments miss that Rust’s guarantees are also very handy in day-to-day applications with less strict requirements.

Florian Gilcher uses Rust to present elegant, compiler-supported solutions for common problems of everyday applications as well as the infrastructure around them. None of the examples requires any previous Rust knowledge and will be accompanied by examples in commonly known languages for reference.

Topics include:

  • Concurrency without fear: enforcing a single path of access to concurrent resources
  • Type system supported protocols: never accidentally use a closed connection again
  • Tamed mutability: how fine-grained control over mutability gives rise to better assumptions about the program
