The agenda of rustcon Asia conference is divided into two parts, in which there are keynote speeches on the first and second morning, including regular 30 minute speeches and about 15 minute short speeches. The first day is an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to rust from its characteristics, programming thinking, tool use and other aspects; The topic content of the second day focuses on the efficiency of rust in application, helping you to compare the technical selection and analyze the application effect. Nick will tell you the progress of various projects in rust community. The next three and four days will be the start-up workshop. In two days, there will be different topics in three rooms in parallel. Please prepare your homework in advance.

The lecturers of this conference are from Australia, Canada, Europe and Asia. Nick of rust core team has been leading the work of rust dev tools and cargo team, and has given serious suggestions and support when rustcon Asia was in its prototype (see)Reddit); Three lecturers from Baidu X-lab (Mingshen sun, Yiming Jing, Yu Ding) have long been engaged in the field of security and rust community. This time, they have also lived up to expectations and returned home to support the first rust conference in Asia. In addition, lecturers of different nationalities from Europe and developers who have made active contributions in the rust community for a long time will meet with you in Beijing. In addition, the domestic rust project and top developers also surfaced. You will see developers from pingcap, secret ape technology, Zhihu, Alibaba and bilibilibili and active contributors to the Chinese community.

Rustcon Asia will be a big gathering of Asian rust communities. Because of this conference, the local rust communities in Asia are connected to the rest of the world. Previously, rustfest’s partners saw part of the agenda and were excited to listen to what happened to the rust community in Asia.

If you have just come into contact with rust, or just heard about it, you must come to rustbridge; Interested in cryptography? Listen secp256k1; There are also indispensable application cases of rust in live broadcasting, search, IOT, etc. As for the legend that rust’s learning path is particularly steep, come to the scene to listen to people’s experience and lessons, which will definitely benefit you a lot.

There will be simultaneous interpreting support at the conference site, so there is no need to worry about language barriers. Most of our lecturers bring their own bilingual skills. Please enjoy hang out with the lecturers and other partners attending the meeting!
