What we're about

For avid Rust devs, newcomers and generally those interested in learning more about Rust and beyond!

We're a group interested in the Rust programming language (http://www.rust-lang.org/). Rust is "a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety."

Join our Slack group (https://join.slack.com/t/rust-akl/shared_invite/enQtNDMzODUyMzYzMDYxLWI2YWUwMDMwOWZmMjEzZWU0YmYwZjYyOGFkNWM4ZmY4N2M4MTBiYWVlYTJlNmQ5NDZlNjhkN2ZlNGM0YTBhMjc) for Rust discussion, slide info, questions for the speakers and anything else related to the meetup.

Slides from our past meetups can be found on our github (https://github.com/rust-akl/meetup).

If you have any further questions, feel free to email the organisers at rustauckland@gmail.com

Rust Meetup in March

GridAKL / John Lysaght

Getting started with Rust on embedded devices: How Rust can be used on embedded devices and the current state of Rust embedded. C/C++ is the de facto standard for embedded development. For Rust to be a serious contender to replace C/C++ it must do well with embedded devices. Presented by Simon. Write more code with less code: Azriel will take us through procedural macros (proc_macro), he's particularly keen on proc_macro attributes.
