The Linux kernel is a project with a lot of special requirements on your code, and until late last year, one of those requirements was that you had to use C. Today, this is no longer true, and there are now several Linux kernel driver projects using Rust.
In this talk, you will hear about the experience of using Rust in the Linux kernel, and the journey of building a complex driver.
Actors are an elegant way to work with shared resources. Furthermore, actors fit together with Rust’s ownership rules very well, and learning how to write actors gives a better understanding of how to write code that the borrow checker likes.
As a part of our commitment to sustainability, we’re planting “Speaker’s trees” on behalf of our speakers. These trees represent our effort to offset the carbon emissions from their travel. By planting trees, we’re helping to reduce our carbon footprint and combat the effects of climate change. Join us in this symbolic act and help make our conference eco-friendly.
