  1. 1. Lisbon Rust-lang MeetupLisbon Rust-lang Meetup #1#1 Rust Introduction and current statusRust Introduction and current status 2 July 2014 Slides by /João Oliveira @jxs01
  2. 2. WhatWhat Rust is a that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and over the lifecycle of memory. systems programming language complete control
  3. 3. WhenWhen Started as a Graydon Hoare's part-time side project in 2006 and remained so for over 3 years. Mozilla got involved in 2009 once the language was mature enough to run some basic tests and demonstrate the idea Though it is sponsored by Mozilla, Today, Rust is developed by a diverse community of enthusiasts.
  4. 4. WhyWhy Need for memory management model, and simpler concurrent programming constructs to prototype and experiment new browser stacks. Specifically, Lots of good ideas known and loved from other languages which had not yet made into widely used systems languages safer Servo
  5. 5. FeaturesFeatures Ownership. model to deal with memory management Expressive. type inference, higher order functions, pattern matching and algebraic data types Safe task-based concurrency. Rust's lightweight tasks do not share memory, instead communicating through messages. Polymorphism. Rust has type-parametric functions and types, type classes and OO-style interfaces.
  6. 6. Features (cont)Features (cont) Multiplatform. Runs on Linux, OS X, , Self hosting. The Rust compiler and libraries are entirely written in Rust Embeddable. Rust code is , being able to be embedded by other Open source. Android iOS C-ABI compatible languages MIT/Apache 2.0 License
  7. 7. StatusStatus 1.0 expected when all the P-backcompat-lang issues are solved

  10. 10. Rust development is trully open DevelopmentDevelopment Communication. #Rust on and mailing list Issues. Issue tracker hosted on github used not only by developers reporting issues but by the core team itself Meetings The Rust team has weekly meetings, where minutes are recorded on Etherpad and then archived on a RFC's. RFC's to discuss major features/changes irc.mozilla.org rust- dev repo Public
  11. 11. Popular projectsPopular projects . A NES emulator with no GC, using modern Rust conventions GNU coreutils re-written in Rust A Game engine written in Rust A web framework inspired by express.js sprocketnes Coreutils. Piston, Floor.
  12. 12. Meetup Goals/challengesMeetup Goals/challenges Learning Rust while trying to help the language development, and discuss systems programming challenges Finding where Rust shines and where it falls short Learning about Servo and discuss browser architectures Sugestions :) ?
