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 7TH EDITION of the RUST MEETUP LINZ. Join us for an evening of Rust with two great sessions. As always, we tried to find a good mix of topics for Rust beginners as well as experienced Rust coders. Hopefully, many of you find the content interesting and join us in this virtual meetup.

After a short introduction by the meetup organizers, CELIA LEWIS will be our first speaker. In her talk, Celia will show how to become great contributors to Rust open source projects. As a member of Embark Studios' developer ecosystem team, she has a lot of experience to draw from in that area.

Next up will be WILLIAM HAWKINS. William's talk will be performance-related. He compares the performance of range- and counter-based loops in Rust.

Welcome and Introduction

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

17:40
Getting Started With Open Source Rust

A talk showcasing the typical workflow of someone contributing to an open-source project through Github. The talk details the process of forking, branching, finding an issue, fixing the issue in VS-Code with Rust, making a PR, and more through a fun demo that can be revisited post-session. Concludes with an exploration of Embark Studios' several open-source Rust projects (including GPU code in Rust, PhysX in Rust, and more) and how you can start using/contributing to them.

Comparing Performance of Range- and Counter-Based Loops in Rust

In this short session, William will share the story of investigating the difference in performance between a `for v in expression` loop and a `while` loop. The talk will cover topics in the Rust language itself, compiler optimization levels and how to benchmark performance.

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.
