BEAM + Rust: A match made in heaven

The BEAM is well-known for its fault-tolerant properties. It's quite performant and memory efficient for many use-cases. But occasionally we find ourselves hitting the limits of what the BEAM can provide us. What happens when we need to interface directly with hardware? Or when a specific part of our application needs to be as fast as possible?

In this talk Sonny will introduce the audience to Rust - a systems programming language that aims to empower everyone to build reliable and efficient software - and the various methods that can be used to integrate with it from the BEAM.


Demonstrate the flexiblity of the BEAM when integrating with the outside world. Introduce the audience to the Rust programming language and the benefits it provides.


Anyone who wants to learn about Rust and how use it within BEAM-based applications.
