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.

Trusted Computing with Rust and Intel SGX

Do you like a challenge and at the same time don't trust the cloud? Then this talk is for you!

Working without the standard library is a core (no pun intended) aspect of Rust - and it's useful for many things, including embedded development, WASM, and working with encrypted computation such as SGX. In this talk we'll look closer at the latter: Intel's Software Guard EXtensions (SGX) and how we can get started running (mostly) safe no_std code hidden from the eyes of your cloud provider.

About Claus Matzinger

Claus Matzinger is a software engineer with a very diverse background. After working with several legacy programming languages early on, a database start up (Crate.io) was the stepping stone towards sophisticated data pipelines. At Microsoft, two years later, this should prove useful where Claus helps customers build machine learning pipelines, sort out their MLOps, and the occasional modelling. Along the way, Claus has written two books about the Rust programming language and blogs at https://blog.x5ff.xyz.

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.
