An Introduction to Rust for Rubyists
- Union St, 18-20 Union Street, S1 2JP
- 6.30 to 8.30pm
What is it about Rust that is attracting Ruby devs, programmers from other high-level languages, and systems developers from languages like C?
This talk will look at some of the language features that make Rust expressive like Ruby but also performant enough to interest those from the C and C++ world.
We will take a beginner-friendly look at the type system, ideas around ‘ownership’ of memory, and the useful tooling around the language.
