Concepts of Rust and how to apply them

Day 1 - 17th Oct 15:20-16:10 Hall 3 (Main Sub-ground Level) Advanced Pascal Hertleif, Marc Schettke

A language that tracks resource lifetimes and has trait-based generics instead of garbage collection and mainstream object orientation – sounds weird? Rust takes a number of surprising or unfamiliar approaches to defy classic tradeoffs. In this talk innovative language features and idiomatic libraries of this emerging ecosystem are introduced and demonstrated with practical examples along with a glance at the project’s structure. While Rust admittedly demands a mindset different from mainstream languages, it could also reveal a new perspective on your code’s architecture – even in other languages.
