3. futures/async/tokio and some opencl - Ruben De Smet

Bio:
I am Ruben De Smet, and recently graduated as Master in computer science in Brussels (VUB). I tried to drag in Rust as much as possible in my
education, especially in my last Master year. I will present two "University projects", one of which is personally important, and the other which is "just" cool use of Rust.

Async programming:
By the time of the meetup, I will have presented the cryptographic and security aspects of my work on my Msc thesis at a conference in Vienna.
For this meetup, I will present the same project, but from the engineering standpoint, with a focus on the async programming and usage of futures, including a basic introduction of those primitives.
I cannot give too many details before August 24 (date of the conf.), but
the title: "An extensible, peer-to-peer, private online social network".
I am thus using Rust and asynchronous programming in a peer-to-peer system.

OpenCL:
OpenCL is a programming system that targets GPUs. For a course at my University, I used Rust to schedule and benchmark my OpenCL kernels. I will shortly present some cool things one can do in Rust, including `criterion` for benchmarks, and some clever use of move semantics and how to use state machines.

4. Wasm short presentation
5. Cargo time (a short demo from you, to you, bring stuff with you to demo what you do with rust)
