RUST by Anthony Broad-Crawford

Recorded January 06, 2015 at ChicagoRuby Downtown

Despite the challenges of new languages, a majority of developers are intrigued about the idea of becoming a polyglot, but don’t know where to begin or don’t have the time. However, there is one language of late that is the sure-fire answer to the above questions - Rust. In this talk, explore the value behind becoming more polyglotic as a developer, how to pick languages to learn, and then dive deep in the the language of Rust, which might be hands down the best up and coming language to learn.
