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 to the 8TH EDITION of the RUST MEETUP LINZ. Join us for an evening of Rust with two great sessions. This time, our speakers come from Germany and the USA. We will hear one language-oriented session and one about Rust with Kubernetes.

After a short introduction by the meetup organizers, FLORIAN GILCHER will be our first speaker. Florian is a Rust programmer, trainer, business owner, and project maintainer. He's part of the Rust community and core team and a director of the Rust Foundation. He's heavily interested in open collaboration methods and ways to find positive and productive relationships between Open Source and the industry.

Next up will be TAYLOR THOMAS. Taylor is a Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft Azure working with Helm, as well as other open-source tools. He has been involved with containers and Kubernetes platforms at Intel, Nike, and Microsoft and is one of the core maintainers of Helm. He currently lives in the Utah area and enjoys hiking and camping. He has also talked at multiple conferences, such as KubeCon, Velocity Conference, and Helm Summit about a variety of topics related to containers and Kubernetes.

Welcome and Introduction

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

Ownership and Borrowing From a Systems Construction Point of View

Rust's Ownership and Borrowing System has repercussions beyond the mere topic of memory safety. This talk approaches the topic from a different angle: interaction between components. I found this view a useful one to take when teaching Rust to programmers that enter Rust with a background of memory-safe programming languages such as Ruby, Java, or Python.

The Rusting Cloud

One year ago, my team released Krustlet, a Kubernetes Kubelet implementation for running WASM modules written in Rust. Since then, we've spent plenty of time out on the frontier, implementing full Kubernetes functionality, all in Rust. In this session, we'll cover why we chose Rust and how WASM and Rust work together. Using examples from Krustlet, we'll also review the pros and cons of using Rust for writing software for the cloud and address how it compares to languages like Go.

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.
