Rust Meetup Linz

It's time for the steel city to Rust!

Open Meetup

Intro

In the last years, Rust has become a popular programming language. Many use it, even more are eager to learn it. Linz has meetups for many programming languages, but Rust has been missing - and that is about to change.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a Rust meetup in Linz.

The goal is to bring together people who are using Rust or who are curious and want to learn about it. We invite everybody to contribute short talks about the Rust programming language or related technologies. It might be an interesting feature you discovered, a project you have been working on, a finding of yours from a real-world project, a Rust-related book that you want others to know about, anything that you want to contribute to the local Rust community is welcome. Before and after the talks there will be time for informal chatting.

Because of the current Covid-19 situation, the Rust meetup Linz will happen online in the foreseeable future. On the long run, in-person meetups with streaming of the delivered talks are planned.

Welcome and Introduction

We will start the evening with a welcome round and some community news.

How not to rely on inheritance

As opposed to many languages, Rust doesn't have a concept of inheritance, relying instead on Traits. In this talk, we'll talk about Traits and how to use them for common programming patterns.

Writing a kernel driver with Rust

Anti-Virus', Anti-Cheats and even Hackers are utilizing Kernel Drivers. Why? Because they want have full control over your operating system to either protect or harm you. This talk will explain how you can use Rust to start developing your own Kernel Drivers.

About Matthias Heiden

Matthias is a passionate Software Engineer with an interest in Software Security. He first heard about Rust in school and decided to give it a try. A few months after reading the Rust book, he finally had the time to rewrite some personal projects and started to understand why Rust is awesome.

Participation

Do you want to deliver a talk at the Rust meetup Linz? Great! Please enter your suggested topic in Sessionize.

Submit Talk in Sessionize

If possible, talks should be delivered in English. If you are not comfortable speaking English, German is an option, too. Rust is still a rather young language. Thus, not many people consider themselves as Rust experts. Because of this, we are not just looking for deep dive content. Introductory sessions are great, too, so that beginners, students, and hobbyists have the opportunity to start their Rust journey.

You do not need to be a Rust pro to talk at our meetup! If you have something Rust-related to share that you are passionate about, we would love to have you as a speaker.
