Challenger Language Series - Rust

This event has already taken place. Have a look at our upcoming events to see what’s coming up.

Grab a coffee and join AND Digital for Elevenses!

For over 20 years, JavaScript, Java and C have topped the lists of most popular programming languages but we love learning about what else is out there.

What alternatives are available to us, and what kind of ecosystems could we use them in? Should we be considering using them… or not?

In this second part of a five-part series, we’ll be looking at Rust - a language that continually tops the ‘most loved’ lists.For 48 years, C has been the mainstay for low-level system programming. Can Rust, with its modern security, safety and programming paradigms baked into the language, be a worthy challenger to this crown?

This session will cover:

  • A brief history of Rust
  • Rust’s use cases
  • Features of the language
  • A live demo
  • Is it worth looking into?

About AND Elevenses

In our collective new normal of working from home, we’ve noticed ourselves just how easy it is to lose track of time and find yourself working without sufficient breaks. Without these, we all know how fast productivity, focus and wellbeing can dwindle.

So, to help break up your day, we’ve launched AND Elevenses: snappy, 45-minute live webinar sessions where you can learn new skills, network with others and take some time out from your working day.

If you've missed an event, don't worry. You can watch recordings here from each Elevenses session we run.
