Modern-day safe concurrent programming with Rust

GOTO Night is back in Stockholm with two talks with Florian Gilcher and Kresten Thorup. Florian will talk about modern-day safe concurrent programming with Rust, while Kresten will provide an overview of the advantages of Index-Free Logging and how his company Humio implements it. Expect an evening of learning and networking with fellow developers.

Florian Gilcher is a programmer, teacher and entrepreneur. He has been part of the Rust project for 5 years and is the person with the most training experience in the language. Florian is also a co-founder of Ferrous Systems, a company aiming to collect all Rust knowledge.
