How to write fast Rust code, http://likebike.com/posts/How_To_Write_Fast_Rust_Code.html.
A collection of tips and tricks to improve Rust code performance.
Wasmer —a WebAssembly runtime— 0.13.0 released, https://github.com/wasmerio/wasmer/releases/tag/0.13.0.
• New `wasmer_trap` function in the C API to properly error within a host function,
• Simpler logging,
• Enable by default float-to-int conversions.
Tensorflow.js available on WebAssembly backend, https://yashints.dev/blog/2019/12/17/tfjs-wasm.
From 2641ms with JS to 239ms with Wasm!
Source code of tfjs-backend-wasm, https://github.com/tensorflow/tfjs/tree/master/tfjs-backend-wasm.
With the Face Detector model, Wasm is comparable to WebGL in term of perf.

How to speed up the Rust compiler one last time in 2019, https://blog.mozilla.org/nnethercote/2019/12/11/how-to-speed-up-the-rust-compiler-one-last-time-in-2019/.
The Rust compiler is now faster than ever!
Constant propagation is now on by default in Rust nightly, https://blog.rust-lang.org/inside-rust/2019/12/02/const-prop-on-by-default.html.
Even if LLVM has its own constant propagation pass, this one is more generic and operates earlier. Thus improving compilation performance by 2-10%.

1⃣ Straw is a local, natural & ecological material
2⃣ Lambda value: 0.056W/mK, i.e. exceptional insulation
3⃣ Fire protection w/o fire retardant: REI120 & REIef120
4⃣ Capture 10'000kg of CO₂ (-88.7kg CO₂/m²)
Dramatically reduced power usage in Firefox 70 on macOS with Core Animation, https://mozillagfx.wordpress.com/2019/10/22/dramatically-reduced-power-usage-in-firefox-70-on-macos-with-core-animation/.
Power usage's improved by 3x or more for many use cases. Computer battery life is greatly extended!
