This month, we are hosted by Everbridge at their training center. Everbridge is also sponsoring food and drink.


Rust is a new and exciting systems programming language promising strong typing, cost free abstractions, and fearless concurrency. Some of these hard problems have plagued all programming languages for years. We'll talk about why Rust helps you think about other programming languages more accurately, why Rust helps you communicate with your team, and how you can help test some actual Rust code every day to help the Mozilla foundation improve Firefox.
