I was at Govt.Engineering College, Trichur today morning to give a quick 2-hour presentation on the Rust programming language to final year B.Tech as well as M.Tech (CS) students of the college.
My plan was to compress the one day workshop I had taken earlier at FISAT into a quick 2-hour talk format, covering only the very important points. But I now realize that even that is tough … you definitely need more time. When I was ready to present the core Rust concepts: ownership, borrowing, lifetime, I ran out of time and had to be satisfied with just saying that Rust uses the type system creatively to get memory safety.
I have another 2hour session coming up tomorrow - need to think of some way to cover the key ideas without running out of time.
