More on Talk, Slides, Rust

In an unexpected turn of events I’m now speaking at Java events, mostly about Rust, though. And it’s fun. It’s great to discuss programming languages with other folks and figure out similarities. The slide deck contains roughly 100 slides, but I usually show just a subset based on the time I have available.

This talk is also know as “Rust for curious developers”, why reduce ourselves to Java?
