Async / await in Rust promises to simplify concurrent code, and to allow a large number of concurrent tasks to be scheduled at the same time — with less overhead than the same number of OS Threads would require.
In general, async / await lets you write code that avoids "callback hell", in favor of a linear style similar to blocking code while still letting other tasks progress during awaits.
During the last 20 years I have used a number of garbage collected and reference counted programming languages. All of them have a single type for representing strings. Rust has two types of strings that can be stored in three different ways.
I want to shortly illustrate how Rust's strings interact with the heap, with the stack, and with the data segment of your binary, as well as shortly explain what those things are.
I have been thinking lately about what Senior Developers (Senior Engineers, Software Architects, etc.) contribute to an organization.
There is a long list of attributes a senior developer can have, two of them are—
- Performance and output—much better than junior developers
- Level of creativity—constantly trying out new things
I want to examine this dogma, and perhaps shine a light of self-criticism on it.
There are no official Rust libraries for Google APIs available yet, but there are some (mostly) auto generated ones that are fine to use albeit a bit verbose.
Let's go down the rabbit 🐇 hole 🕳.
The major cloud actors have all stated that they will be some combination of carbon neutral, carbon free, and carbon negative at some point in the future.
Not everyone is a cloud vendor! What can a software developer do today to improve the future of the planet?
We have all been called upon by @rustlang to share our thoughts on what we want from Rust in 2020.
It's been two years and two months since I last wrote a blog post - I promise to make it count!
Let's hold hands while we take a dump together!
You think you're hot shit and now you want to know some stuff about authentication and authorization. Maybe start implementing. You want it all.
I'm going to explain Cross-site scripting (XSS) & Cross-site request forgery (XSRF/CSRF) to myself.
macOS doesn't pull its own weight, at least not in a standard configuration. There are a number of apps that need to be installed. Some of them are free, others are not.
If you're like me, and you're coming from two decades of using Windows and Linux, you might want to keep using the keyboard shortcuts you're used to.
You might also be a programmer. In that case: even better.
