In this month's meetup, we'll be learning about futures (0.1).
The aim of the session is to get people who aren't familiar with futures up-to-speed, and to help users of futures deal with the common pain points.
We are going to:
- try out various futures combinators (map, for_each, filter_map, then, and_then, etc)
- create our own futures from the Futures trait
- deal with function return signatures (impl Future, or do we Box?)
The aim is to deal with streams in detail, and futures 0.3 in separate sessions later on.
18h is informal greetings, pizza, and drinks. This is followed by a talk/demo, complete with questions and discussions. 20h is when we vacate the nice offices of Jemstep.
