Julia and Rust BoF
07-28, 14:00–15:00 (US/Eastern), 32-144

Julia and Rust both punch above their weight, but how well do they gel together? We'll invite community members to speak on their experiences interfacing the languages in both directions, future possibilities of collaboration and leveraging the best of both worlds.


Where and when should Julia or Rust be considered? What are the common pitfalls to avoid? What should people really know about before embarking on learning or interfacing with Rust?
Although Julia has seen great increase in usage in the past few years, Rust's rise has been stratospheric, as it even has a place in the Linux kernel now.
This BoF will discuss
a) that there is much to learn from cooperation on both languages
b) how performance sparring will compound over time
c) that both languages are now pushing into domains not initially carved out of their initial designs (but where one may learn from the other)
d) the case for and against Rust in Julia internals
This BoF is open to beginner and experienced Julia and Rust users alike.

I try to do physics, Julia, and Rust, both in english and in spanish.

Ask me about the REPL, spanish intensive Julia courses or for corporate trainings on how to learn Rust.
