This year I’m one of the rockstars (People usually calling me) speaker at Web track. This is the first time Mozilla participated at GDG DevFest Ahmedabad The fest involved developers and professionals all around. I gave a talk on Rust programming which is one of emerging technologies and one of the major focus of Mozilla these days.
This time I’m going to change my blog style and going to include some real time tweets which can get through about, how the complete session went. So, Let’s find out.
Started my talk by introducing them to Rust and why I’m using Rust? I believe, Rust is new enough that you can write useful stuff that would have already existed in other languages. It also gives a relatively familiar tool to the modern C++ developers, but in the much more consistent and reliable ways.
Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. But, in my opinion, “Rust is a good choice when you’d choose C++. You can also say, “Rust is a systems programming language that pursuing the trifecta: safe, concurrent, and fast.” I would say, Rust is an ownership-oriented programming language.”
Normally people became ‘lazy’ or ‘sleepy’ after having lunch and moreover, if you get delicious Gujarati food then you can’t resist yourself to have. Upon that my talk was the first in line after lunch break so to having that in mind I have changed my talk style and from the start only I have tried to make the session interactive so the audience can also be part and their mind can be diverted. Guess what, It worked and people loved the interaction period. All an all we have a very healthy conversation during the session.
I believe, new system programming language solves a lot of common system programming bugs. Moreover here we have Cargo: Rust Package manager which helps to Improve your toolkit. And, Its best for Self-learning & always have fun to do.
According to recent The Stack Overflow survey, Rust is the most beloved among developers of all programming languages and frameworks.
Well, I don’t think. :-P
Feedback is always valuable information for me as that will be used to make improvements in your work and help me to boost to do even better.
