This month’s speaker: Erik Nordin (@ObliqueMotion)

Tonight we'll take a look into Rust’s most straightforward smart pointer, Box, examining some practical scenarios in which Box is extremely useful and often necessary. Though the overall focus will be on Box, we will touch on other subjects like generics, trait bounds, iterators, enums, structs, and more. Bring a laptop and join us for this beginner-friendly follow-along-style presentation with live coding. All are welcome. It will be “heaps” of fun!

Erik Nordin is a CS student at Portland State University (PSU). He is finishing his last two school terms and graduating with a B.S. in Computer Science this December. Erik first started programming in Rust exactly one year ago when he took Bart Massey’s summer Rust course at PSU.
