An early look at Servo

Rust Skåne

FOOD: Yes

LEVEL: Intermediate

No one really knows Rust yet, and our intent is to provide a friendly atmosphere where people from different backgrounds and levels of experience can learn and explore Rust together. Here we're all beginners, and together we can find out how we can use the playground that Rust provides us, to teach ourselves something that can make us better programmers.

Schedule

We'll start with a meet and greet at 17.30.

The presentation will start at 18.00

An early look at Servo

Servo is Mozilla's research project to use Rust to build a browser engine with a very high degree of parallelism and without certain classes of bugs and security vulnerabilities that are common in Gecko and WebKit. We'll take a look at how Rust's memory safety guarantees and lightweight tasks are a good fit for Servo as well as our own projects with similar requirements.

Speaker: Jakub Wieczorek

Background

Rust visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details. Its design is oriented toward concerns of creating and maintaining boundaries – both abstract and operational – that preserve large-system integrity, availability and concurrency.

It supports a mixture of imperative procedural, concurrent actor, object-oriented and pure functional styles. Rust also supports generic programming and metaprogramming, in both static and dynamic styles.
