The Ideal Programming Language
What would your ideal programming language look like? Erik Doernenburg, head of technology at Thoughtworks, and Richard Feldman, author of “Elm in Action,” sat together at GOTO Copenhagen 2021 to chat about what theirs would look like. They also had a look into the future of up-and-coming languages.
Rust in Action
Rust in Action introduces the Rust programming language by exploring numerous systems programming concepts and techniques. You'll be learning Rust by delving into how computers work under the hood. You'll find yourself playing with persistent storage, memory, networking and even tinkering with CPU instructions. The book takes you through using Rust to extend other applications and teaches you tricks to write blindingly fast code. You'll also discover parallel and concurrent programming. Filled to the brim with real-life use cases and scenarios, you'll go beyond the Rust syntax and see what Rust has to offer in real-world use cases. Richard Feldman, author of Elm in Action, goes over the benefits of this multi-paradigm, high-level, general-purpose language together with Tim McNamara, author of Rust in Action.
Zen and the Art of Convincing Your Company to Use Rust
Ready for Rust
**Erik is head of technology at ThoughtWorks and contributor of several important programming books** In the StackOverflow developer survey Rust has been the most loved programming language for five years in a row (2016-2020). Time to **see why Mozilla's creation is so popular.** In this talk you'll encounter many of Rust's core features on a journey through a real codebase (a genetic programming simulator). As someone who has programmed in a number of languages Erik will highlight where Rust is different from other languages and what that means in day-to-day development. You'll also get a glimpse of the growing ecosystem around Rust.
I Learned Embedded Development with Rust And You Can Too
Are you a web developer? Have you ever wondered what it's like to make a microcontroller blink some LEDs? In this talk, Steve will show how he got started learning how to do embedded work after a decade of making web applications. In his opinion, there's more similarities than you may think! He'll cover some background information, explain some concepts you'll need to know, get a basic example going with Rust, and where to go from there.
