Rust is a new systems language emerging from the brain trust of the Mozilla Foundation. While maintaining a strong emphasis on performance -comparable to C-, Rust also incorporates numerous functional concepts to provide a level of stability and programmer productivity unheard within the C linage. Emerging projects include Servo, a complete rewrite of Firefox browser and uutils coreutils, a port of the famous Gnu tools suite. Please join the Philly Lambda crew for a gentle introduction to this young but certainly, interesting language.
The speaker will be Paul Santa Clara of relay network.
