Pioneering Rest



We look back on a fun and educational evening! Thanks to everyone who attended. Below, as promised, are the links to the available slides, if you, like us, would like to read back what was discussed.

Be part of the rust Revolution!

Let Lightyear and other experts inspire you and discover the benefits of using the Rust programming language in your R&D. In the opening talk we will take a closer look at what Rust can offer your organization and in the lightning talks we will discuss Rust and security and Rust and embedded software development.

The benefits of using Rest reign supreme, and for good reason. Get inspired by the Rust experts. They will talk about their experiences with Rust within different companies and projects. There is also room for questions about Rust.

This meetup is organized by the High Tech Software Cluster in partnership with Second wave. Second wave is Rust expert, silver member of the Rust Foundation and pushes the adoption of Rust in the Netherlands.
