Why we're using Rust for cloud rendering by Iain MacIver: https://www.digitalbridge.com/blog/why-were-using-rust-for-cloud-rendering #Rust #language
One day you will be touched by the curse of the Senior Developer, half of your team will not do a real review of your code, assuming it is correct, and then you will have to review it twice before assigning it. #developerlife
We received a lot of applications for https://rustlab.it , choosing the right ones for the schedule will be very hard
TIL – Using conditional entries in .gitconfig to automatically manage #git identities based on the working directory. Nice!
If you have adopted Rust, please share your experience submitting a talk, if you are planning the adoption, join us at the conference!
I have found a dual feeling about code ownership: there is the bad gut 🚫 feeling of defending your precious code, and the good caregiver 🤰 feeling of seeing your code grow robust and maintainable.
Tech Leaders should promote the caregiver ownership, and think in that terms for what enters in the master of a long running project.
My #rust2019 wish-list https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/a6y6my/rust_2019_wishlist/ TL;DR
- Partial borrow of structs
- Function like macros (proc_macro_hygiene)
- Const generics
- Established crates (central crates for the ecosystem, shared community effort on them?)
Struggling with a #Python 2 -> 3 porting, something that could have helped a lot is:
- support for annotation syntax in Python 2 (stripping everything, just parse them)
- include `six` in both Python 2 and Python 3
There's already a working REPL based on it, just one `cargo install evcxr_repl` away.
It seems to work rather well for many basic things. Evaluation is slightly slow (600-700ms for `1+2` on my mac) compared to dynamic languages or even ghc. But it works!
Sorry folks, dunno why but I used `vec!()` instead of `vec!`, the compiler doesn't care, but the same `vec!` is the "right" one.
I'm Matteo, a software developer in Italy, I started programming ages ago with Visual Basic, that used a bit Java, and just before version 1.6 I found #Python , but I like experimenting with new languages like #Elm or #Rust (or Kotlin, or Dart)
I've been a #scout 🏕️ as a boy and a Scout Leader for years, an now I have my own two little children to take care of with my wonderful wife
TR @rust_torino@twitter After the Summer break, we start again with the #rust #torino meetings. Well play with #ripgrep and friends. Well see how #clap and #termcolor would help us getting an #ifconfig workalike And, as per tradition, we'll see some #rocket https://github.com/rust-torino/meetings/issues/1
Thanks to @top_ix@twitter for hosting us.
Interesting story how #golang ended up offering a simpler and less error prone time interface https://github.com/golang/proposal/blob/master/design/12914-monotonic.md#design without changing the API
