I'm Getting Rusty

HELLO, WORLD!

Are you ready for some mother fucking Rust?

Welcome to my Devember 2020 Thread.

CUE THE METAL MUSIC

DUH DUH DUHDUHDUH DUUUUUHHHH DUNNANANANANADUNANNAAN BUDAH TA BUDAH TA BUDAHBUDAHBUDAH TAH WEEEEWEEEEWEEEE YOWWWWWWW BWAAAAAA WAH WAH

For Devember 2020 I am going to learn RUST. The based language that told Google they can Go you know what :wink:

Why Rust?

For job prospects and to get deeper involved in a few projects at work. Also I think it’s a cool language.

What are you building?

A flight pattern software. Calm down, NSA, it’s going to be fictional. Something that would make Dijkstra proud, though.

Where are you hosting?

I’ll be a cool L1T kid and host on Linode, but I’ve had an account for several years. No free credit for me :sunglasses:

What is your environment?

I’ll be using a Linux desktop environment, vim, and a few plugins like YouCompleteMe and Vim Airline. Obviously Rust SDK will be installed…

Can I ask you a question?

Go ahead :slight_smile:

TODO

- GitLab links
- Build environment (I don’t know if Rust is actually installed :thonk:)
- Domain
- Server shit

Yo!. This will be so dope. I have been looking to learn rust, but I have not had any need to create anything new in a while.

Hey! Thanks man! I’m looking forward to it. I have a very small amount of experience already but it’s the typical Enterprise dev experience of “OH shit we gotta get this figured out just rip examples from the tutorial site/StackOverflow and get it working”. Hasn’t been a pleasant experience lol. I want to use this time to “take it slow” and get it right, so when I go back to hammering it at work I’ll be able to guide and lead the team rather than just frantically steal shitty examples.

Thats awesome!
I’m also using Rust for my devember2020 project. I will definitely be checking in on this

I’m a C/Javascript dev been doing a bit of go and a bit of rust.

The multithreaded event loop stuff is crazy!

Any web framework built on Hyper is gonna be great :wink:
