Maybe we'll also take a look at database connection handling with connection pools. After the presentation, you can work on your own project or find a project to contribute to. There will be people around that will try to answer your Rust questions.

Add-ons provide a safe, simple, and powerful way to personalize your browsing experience. With WebExtensions APIs, it’s easier than ever to create extensions that can be easily ported to Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Opera. We will show how to get started and then we'll help you to write your first WebExtension. Please bring your laptop with you if you have one, and for those who don't have one with them, we can do pair-programming.
