Forgot to post here! The Crust of #rustlang stream on async/await is now up! My hope is that it's a bit more approachable than the deep-dive video I did a while ago, and that it provides some of the intuition and mental model that comes in handy when _using_ async/await. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThjvMReOXYM
I'm writing a #rustlang book! The full announcement is over on Twitter (sorry): https://twitter.com/jonhoo/status/1399824695600418817
I'm going to try out a new type of #rustlang stream on Saturday @ 6pm UTC (https://everytimezone.com/s/86025e61): "The Unsafe Chronicles". The idea is to go through an interesting experience with unsafe Rust code and how to fix it. It'll be more "explainer" than "coding" like my usual streams — but will hopefully be interesting nonetheless!
Recording of today's #rustlang stream on making the concurrency primitive behind evmap's fast concurrent reads generic is now up! I think it turned out pretty great, and am excited to see what people might do with it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLNAMEoKAAc
The PR (which still needs some cleanup before it'll land) is here for anyone who just wants to see where we ended up: https://github.com/jonhoo/rust-evmap/pull/73
I'll be doing another Crust of Rust stream on sorting implementations this weekend. I'm thinking that since the algorithms are well-known, we can focus specifically on various #rustlang-isms! The stream will be Saturday at 6pm UTC: https://everytimezone.com/s/15d26ae2. As usual I'll stream to both Twitch and YouTube, and upload the recording to YouTube after. This stream should hopefully be ok to follow even if you come from another language, so if you've been on the fence, now's a good time to watch 🍿
