October topic: Rust (Part II)

In October Jim Carr will lead us onward in learning the Rust programming language.

If you couldn’t make September, please look through Jim’s Rust Language Examples sections 1-3 (up through the end of Flow Control) to catch up. If you were there in September, it may be a good idea to review anyway before we start in October.

Rust combines C-like speed with beautiful modern language design and ironclad memory safety. It’s often rated as the most beloved language in developers’ surveys, and is being used in an increasing number of applications.

(Yes, I know Rust is not a dynamic language. We are willing to commit minor heresy here on occasion. Besides, it’s a cool language, which is the important part.)

Innovation Hub - not Brixx!

We’ve begun to meet in the Innovation Hub, a gorgeous new facility that’s part of the renovated Dayton Arcade complex. Enter through the doors that face the Wright Stop Plaza bus hub.

Street parking is free in the evening. I usually park on Ludlow Street.


if for any reason coming downtown doesn’t work for you (for instance, you’ve been exposed to COVID, or you’ve converted yourself to purely digital format and now exist as a set of cloud-hosted algorithms), we’ll be online as well!

Join us at 7 PM EDT on the PyFri Discord channel, discord.gg/9SgTh3T, and click on the General voice chat link. You may need to install the Discord desktop app rather than just using the web interface.
