The talk will explain borrowing in Rust, and how to avoid its pains. This will naturally cover lifetimes, a central concept of the language. It will be given by steved, author of mini-book, A Gentle Introduction To Rust, who is also distinguished in the world of Lua (and still loves it), has written more than a fair bit of C++ in his life, and is a trained physicist.
18h is informal greetings, pizza, and drinks. This is followed by the talk, complete with questions and discussions. 20h is when we vacate the nice offices of Jemstep.
