From High-Level to Systems Programming: A Practical Guide to Rust

Event Logo

Tuesday, July 25, 2023 - 7:30 PM UTC, for 1 hour.

Regular, 60 minute presentation

Room: African 80


The proposed talk is about Rust, a systems programming language that is gaining popularity for its safety features and high performance. The session will cover the basics of Rust syntax and semantics, and explore how to apply Rust's unique approaches to memory management and concurrency to solve real-world problems. The talk will focus on hands-on examples and exercises, and is suitable for developers with experience in high-level programming languages who are looking to dive into the world of systems programming. By the end of the session, attendees will have a solid foundation in Rust and the skills to start building their own high-performance and secure systems. People should attend this session if they are high-level developers (Ruby, Python, JavaScript, etc.) looking to expand their skillset and learn a new language, and who want to gain a deeper understanding of Rust and its capabilities. The talk will provide a practical guide to Rust, with a focus on hands-on examples and exercises, and will help attendees build a solid foundation in the language and the skills to start building their own high-performance and secure systems. If you are interested in learning more about Rust and how it can be applied to solve real-world problems, this talk is for you.
