Dive Into Rust at ORDINATEUR’17

Standard

The event is focused on introducing and teaching the state of art system programming language Rust to local programmers and Mozillians in Gujarat.  This is the first time Mozilla will participate at ORDINATEUR’17! The summit will involve students and tech enthusiasts from the university. I gave a talk on Rust programming which is one of emerging technologies and one of the major focus of Mozilla.

About ORDINATEUR’17 :

ORDINATEUR’17 is a one of a kind flagship event organized by IEEE GCET Computer Society Student Chapter under the them “Tech Trend & Innovate

Before, I shared my experience with this talk, so let me tell you one thing that this was my one of the best intellectual programming debate talk. Yes, it is! 😀 Continue reading

Why Open Source ?

Standard

Firstly, let me extend the thanks to Yuvalay Electronics Lab for inviting me as Speaker to give a talk on Open Source. Moreover, kudos to you to arrange a talk on Open source first time ever in Vadodara city.

About Yuvalay Electronics Lab

Yuvalay Electronics Lab offers a platform and eco-system to the students, hobbyists, and professionals to understand and apply the theoretical knowledge of the subjects in the field of Electronics. It helps to convert the interest into the passion by providing a conducive environment to learn-explore-innovate under the guidance of experts. More

This is the first time ever I have not presented any presentation, this time it’s gonna be a pure talk where people can ask me anything about open source. I have started my talk with, what I am thinking or believing about open source.

For me, contributing to open source can be a rewarding way to learn, teach, and gain experience. No matter which skills you have, everything can be made useful. In this talk, I have shared the following points which can help you to get started with an open source contribution. Continue reading

Why should I use Rust?

Standard

With respect to subject of my blog, this might be the questions of all who heard about this programming language or who have attended any rust session/workshops very first time. Recently when I was traveling to some cities in India for Rust campaign called RainOfRust, that time one 2nd year engineering student who attended one of my session asked me this question, “Why should I use Rust?” when my session got over.

Well, this was the best questions so far anyone asked me during this campaign and I loved to shared how I answered that.

You might thought that I have started my conversation with this general definition that,

Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety.

This the common definition which everybody knows. I always believe that you should share your things the way you understand or the you adopt it. This way your thoughts spread better among all who listened to you.

Rust is a good choice when you’d choose C++. You can also say, “Rust is a systems programming language that pursuing the trifecta: safe, concurrent, and fast.” I would say, Rust is an ownership-oriented programming language.

Here is my definition and from here I started to explained him, after sometime some more students joined the conversation and it became more interesting.

Firstly, the reason that I’ve looked into Rust at first.

  • Rust is new enough that you can write useful stuff that would have already existed in other languages
  • It gives a relatively familiar tool to the modern C++ developers, but in the much more consistent and reliable ways.
  • It is low-level enough that you take account of most resources.
  • Its more like C++ and Go, less like Node and Ruby
  • cargo is awesome. Managing crates just works as intended, which makes a whole lot of troubles you may have in other languages just vanish with a satisfying poof.
