I'm making progress on my #Rust crate oxidized-mdf that parses MSSQL server files. You are wondering why someone wants to pares these files? That's because I want to parse data from a proprietary Windows application for my #Nextcloud plugin spgverien.
🇩🇪 Danke für euren Input zu meiner geplanten Anfrage an die EU-Kommission, warum sie bei ihrer Kommunikation das #Fediverse ignoriert und damit Monopole verfestigt. Hier der aktuelle Entwurf und die Möglichkeit mitzuarbeiten: https://codeberg.org/etienne/eu-fediverse/src/branch/main/letter.md
🇬🇧 Thank you for your feedback regarding my draft question to the EU Commission on why it ignores the #Fediverse in its public communications and thus supports tech monopolies. Current draft: https://codeberg.org/etienne/eu-fediverse/src/branch/main/letter.md

"You're Allowed To Write Slow #Rust Code"
wow: #curl is moving to a RustTLS backend – initially opt-in, but the plan is to make it the default eventually. https://www.abetterinternet.org/post/memory-safe-curl/
I did *not* see that coming. I thought we might one day get a #rust alternative to curl, but curl itself embracing Rust is quite the vote of confidence.
(imo, more meaningful that FAANG's recent/continuing rust love)
I've just stumbled across #LowLevelAcademy and #lowlvl.org.😍
They provide free courses for low-level programming in #Rust, which you can do entirely in the browser. How cool is that!?
It is mainly focused on #networking. Their first #course is already available and they seem to plan a lot more.🎉
Check it out here:
#rust really taught me to think outside the box in a lot of scenarios. Simply knowing how the language handles data makes me a better programmer over all. I can highly recommend it, even if you're not a close-to-the-metal developer.
I think this can't be coincidence🤯 :
@cadey has just released a really good blogpost comparing simple concepts between #Rust and #golang. Maybe it can help you by seeing Rust and Go side-by-side:
Please don't give up on Rust. It is a beautiful language. You won't regret it, I promise.🦀
It's a rewrite of the #dotnet library OrcaMDF and the rewrite enables me to parse MDF files with the parser tool of my #nextcloud plugin spgverein. https://gitlab.com/schrieveslaach/nextcloud-spgverein-app
This is required to support SPG-Verein 4 that is a proprietary Windows program. Thanks to #foss I could provide cloud access to the data.
Maybe I will integrate the crate into #nushell as well.
What killed Haskell, could kill Rust, too
Hopefully I have some time in the next couple of days to release the plugin.
Bjarne Stroustrup Weighs in on Distributed Systems, Type Safety and Rust
Hi folks! My (first?) thesis stream is now up! We talked through my thesis at a high level, and then walked through the current draft of the evaluation chapter. Along the way, I also did Q&A about PhDs and thesis writing. Hopefully it's interesting :)
There seems to be a decent amount of interest in https://fosstodon.org/web/statuses/104563514764595789, so let's dig into my PhD thesis evaluation on Saturday at 5:30pm UTC (https://everytimezone.com/s/d88b7a8c). I'll be focusing on the research/academic aspects of the work, not the Rust parts this time :) Bring questions if you have any! As always, I'll be live on https://twitch.tv/jonhoo and https://youtube.com/c/JonGjengset/live, and the recorded stream will be uploaded to YouTube afterwards.
Number crunching in #Rust makes a lot of fun. My PR for #Peroxide got accepted: https://github.com/Axect/Peroxide/commit/c67f4334b3839e8cabc8a265b9fdb99c9d0fd67a
