The recording of my first #rustlang mini session is now up! We covered lifetime annotations through a real code example, and people seemed to follow along and understand why the lifetimes were needed and how they worked 🎉 Watch it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAl-9HwD858&list=PLqbS7AVVErFiWDOAVrPt7aYmnuuOLYvOa.
In about 6 hours, I'll do a shorter and more beginner-friendly #rustlang stream on multiple lifetimes, strings, and some generics. As usual, the stream will be live on https://twitch.tv/jonhoo and https://youtube.com/c/JonGjengset/live, and I'll upload it afterwards. While it'll be *more* beginner-friendly than my usual streams, it won't be *introductory*. I'll assume that you've read the Rust book, and that you have written some Rust code. But as always, anyone is welcome, so stop by even if just to say hi ❤️

Recording of the Noria stream is up! I think it went well — people seemed to follow the system design and the bug we ended up partially fixing, even though it was quite technical! If you're stuck at home and craving some research-y #rustlang, give it a try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiMUI0y91YI. You can find the project website with code, papers, and other related material at https://github.com/mit-pdos/noria
Apparently mastodon.at is shutting down, so had to move my profile to fosstodon.org! Luckily, I was able to also move the followers, though apparently Mastodon doesn't currently also let you move the "toots"... At least I have them backed up though, so maybe one day! Until the end of March, you can see my old toots at https://mastodon.at/@jonhoo.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
