Learn how to do low-level non-blocking IO with mio, as Tom Pusateri leads us through the process of creating a simple syslog server.

The framework Tokio is built on top of mio, and adds some powerful abstractions, but also a lot of complexity. If you've ever tried to implement an asynchronous module with Tokio, and run up against a sea of complex combinator types, you might be surprised at how simple it can be to work directly with the low-level polling primitives in mio instead. Tom will show us how to do just that.

We are the Triangle Rustaceans, a group of Triangle-area Rust aficionados of all levels of skill and experience. The activity for this month's meeting has not yet been determined.

Meetings will be on the 4th Monday of every month, at 7pm.

All people attending Triangle Rustacean events agree to abide by the Rust Code of Conduct. (
