*** Full Length Talk: Local Native ***

*Local Native* is a decentralized cross-platform tool to save and sync your web bookmark notes in local database without going through any centralized service.

It reuses rust code for core native modules for browser extension (Firefox and Chrome), desktop (Electron on macOS, GNU/Linux) and mobile (iOS, Android).

This talk will overview the motivation, design and architecture of Local Native, walk through the code of integrating rust with various frameworks/languages, demo the app live in action (attempt to share all Yi Wang's web bookmarks about Rust over LAN/WiFi with audience who installed Local Native mobile or desktop app) and Q and A.

*Yi Wang* is a data engineer at day, and codes Rust at night. @localnative_app

*** Lightning Talk: What the Heck is a Pin Projection? ***

In the second iteration of my series on futures/pin, we will go over the complicated topic of pin projections. Why do we need it? How do I implement it safely? What are these stupid invariants that I need to keep track of? And some real use cases!

*Lucio Franco* writes Rust and code things, mainly with futures and tokio.
