The Rust Language has been increasing in popularity over the last few years. Backed by Mozilla to develop Firefox, used by big names like Dropbox and Cloudflare, and winner of “Most Loved Programming Language” 3 years in a row on the StackOverflow Developer Survey. It’s has a strict type system, inspired by ML style languages, and a unique ownership model enforced by the Borrow Checker.

In this talk we’ll look at some of the features of Rust that allow us to write code with fewer bugs.

This is mainly a talk but there will be plenty of code, and people are welcome to bring laptops if they want to try some things out during the talk.
