Interview with Ashley Williams, Rust Foundation Interim Executive Director - Podcast by Context Free:
I love Ashley! A very inspiring and humble person.❤️ 🤗
Also the podcast is really well made, giving context (no pun intended😜) to what is being said by showing certain websites, articles and blog posts about that topic.
Rust Forum Post | Thank you for the teaching on how to write better software - Jorge Leitao
"What I have been learning [...] was not Rust in particular, but how to write sound software in general, and that in my opinion is the largest asset that the rust community tough me[...]. This ability to identify unsound code transcends Rust's language, and in my opinion is heavily under-represented in most cost-benefit analysis over learning Rust or not."
Inspired by this stackoverflow comment😉:

If you are starting a new software (backend) project and it comes to choosing a technology, choose wisely...
Rust challenge 🦀
Here is the solution with annotations:
Rust challenge 🦀
Ok, fellow Rustaceans, here is a little #Rust challenge for you.🤓 Make the following program compile:
The solution is beneath this toot.
Please don't look at it, before you haven't put some amount of thinking into a potential solution.
A toot to your solution here in the thread is very much appreciated (with link to playground, if possible, so that others don't immediately see the code in the toot).🤗
“Ultimately, we are deluding ourselves if we think that the products that we design are the ‘things’ that we sell, rather than the individual, social and cultural experience that they engender, and the value and impact that they have. Design that ignores this is not worthy of the name.” - Bill Buxton
*Remember* to reuse your *memory*!
It can give you incredible performance boosts (if you are memory-bound).🚀
Graphite: An open source node-based 2D graphics editor:
It is still very(!) early, but it looks so promising.🤗
WebAssembly bundle size in #Rust:
=> Rust version is 100x smaller (and you can make it even smaller)!
Hm...which approach should I ch...RUST!
Watch this when you are not distracted.
"Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread.":
I think #Rust is maybe at the end of the "Early adopters" stage:
Trust me: Rust will blow up within the next two years! 🎉 🚀
If you are a Web Developer or are interested in it, Codrops is just an *amazing* resource!😍 🤗
They have a news section (🐰 🕳️ ) and a lot of cool showcases of animations. ✨
Probably the best resource I know for WebDevs (together with MDN of course:
Passionate Software Developer interested in TypeScript, Rust, Node, C# and a lot of other interesting stuff.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
