I am a Senior Developer Relations Engineer at Parity, where I help developers learn and build on the decentralized web.
I am also a second career developer and previously spent nearly a decade working in the fields of public service, community organizing, and adult education. During my previous career, I was published in places such as Time Magazine, The Boston Globe, The Huffington Post, The Denver Post, and other publications. I am a native Californian who spent a long time living in NYC and Tel Aviv and now reside near Miami.
Are you a high-level developer looking to expand your skillset and learn a new language? Rust is a systems programming language that is gaining popularity for its safety features and high performance. In this session, we will cover the basics of Rust syntax and semantics, and explore how to apply Rust’s unique approaches to memory management and concurrency to solve real-world problems. With a focus on hands-on examples and exercises, this session is suitable for developers with experience in high-level programming languages who are looking to dive into the world of systems programming. By the end of this session, you will have a solid foundation in Rust and the skills to start building your own high-performance and secure systems.
