Please join us for a special holiday edition of TriPython with door prizes and festive refreshments.

This summer David Handy (http://sourceforge.net/u/davidhandy/profile/) decided to learn the Rust (http://www.rust-lang.org/) programming language, because it had been recommended to him by a respected colleague as a superior alternative to C/C++. In his presentation, David will share:

Why Rust is a better systems language than C/C++ (and why Python programmers should care)
Brief overview of Rust features
Rust/Python integration, with examples
Rust/JavaScript integration, with examples
Recommendations for Learning Rust

David Handy is a long-time TriPython participator and Python developer. He’s a homeschooling Dad, volunteer programming tutor, and author of a (now out-of-print) beginning programming textbook (http://www.handysoftware.com/cpif/).

Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to “show and tell” something you’ve learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others.

Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. We will likely not have an after-meeting as we will have holiday snacks at the meeting.
