I'm pleased to announce the next Bay Area Rust Meetup on Thursday July 31, 2014, at Hack Reactor in San Francisco. This meetups theme is based on the amazing work at building Rust's web infrastructure. We have talks across the the entire web stack. Here is are lineup of speakers:
• Jonathan Reem and Zach Pomerantz: Iron (https://github.com/iron/iron) middleware framework
• Steven Fackler: The design and a bit of implementation of rust-postgres (https://github.com/sfackler/rust-postgres/). I'll also briefly go over rust-postgres-macros which leverages Rust's compiler plugin support to add some static safety checks to SQL statements.
• Christoph Burgdorf: Nickel (https://github.com/floor-org/floor) web server
• James Rowe: Why you should make a Web Framework in Rust
Since we're having the event in a new location, we'll be funding dinner ourselves tonight, so please bring a couple dollars to help chip in for the food. We also hope to record the sessions for Air Mozilla and stream them live online, but we're figuring out the details for that. I'll send out more once we figure out setup out.
Finally, please make sure to grab a visitor's pass from the reception desk when you first get here.
See you then!
