"Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety"

Rust allows you to write safe, fast and maintainable code. It provides high-level zero-cost abstractions and an advanced type system which brings ergonomics from functional and dynamic programming languages to the land of compiled languanges.

We will present the unique advantages of Rust compared to established systems programming languages. We will show what safety means in the context of a systems programming language. And we will see how Rust achieves these safety guarantees. At the end, we will show how these safety guarantees help you writing concurrent and parallel code.

Of course we will also be available to answer your questions!
