Lightning talk: Why you should be checking out Rust

A session at The Lead Developer

Friday 11th September, 2015

2:30pm to 2:40pm (GMT)

A very brief introduction to Rust and why it should be on your radar. Rust is a “systems” programming language that is designed to be a modern replacement for C++. It has an impressive out-of-the box tool chain, an interesting approach to safe concurrency and easy integration with C and other languages. It’s certainly a powerful tool to have at your disposal.
