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.

Birthday meetup 🥳🎈🎂, Next week we celebrate one year of RUST LINZ meetups. Thank you so much to all speakers, organizers, and participants for all your contributions!

Of course, we need something special for such an event. We spoke with our friends at the GRAND GARAGE and they allow us to use their huge sun deck for the FIRST IN-PERSON RUST LINZ meetup ever 😎. To keep everyone safe, everything will happen outdoor and 3G is a must.

In celebration of our one-year anniversary, we will provide some drinks (soft drinks, beer, Radler) and we are looking forward to a great evening with people who are as excited about Rust as we are. We want to thank 🙏 the city of Linz and dynatrace for sponsoring our anniversary meetup.

🚨 IMPORTANT: If you join us in person, be sure to take your 3G papers along and register on Tito. We have a cap of 50 people on the venue, so registration is required.

Serverless Rust

If you run your software in the cloud, you might have already done some Serverless programming. Be it either as glue code that connects existing services or for your entire web API. But can we run Serverless workloads with our most favorite programming language as well?

We can! In this talk, we are going to look at how to run serverless workloads in Rust in Azure Functions and AWS Lambda. In doing so, we will see the fundamental differences between both serverless providers, and what effect this has on your applications!

Traits - Not Your Grandparents' Interfaces

Developers who approach Rust from the viewpoint of other OO languages like TypeScript, C#, or Java frequently misinterpret Rust's traits as interfaces. That might be true to a certain extent, but on closer examination traits are much more powerful than you might think. In this demo-only session, Rainer Stropek starts by introducing you to the fundamentals of traits. You will see how to create your own ones, how to manually implement system traits, and how to auto-implement them. Once we covered those basics, Rainer dives deeper into unique features of traits. We will look at default implementations, trait parameters, trait objects, and trait bounds for generics.

About Rainer Stropek

Rainer is chairman of the Coding Club Linz and co-founder of the Rust meetup in Linz. Rainer has been exploring Rust for some months and would like to share his learnings about Cargo, Rust's package management and build tool.

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.
