Steve Klabnik


The History of Rust

The Rust programming language recently celebrated its one year anniversary since 1.0. While that's not a long time, there were eight years of development before that, which saw radical changes in the language. In this talk, Steve will show off some of Rust's history, with all of the decisions and changes that were made along the way.


Steve is a member of the Rust core team, and writes a lot of documentation. Previously, he worked on Ruby and Rails, and is the author of 'The Rust Programming Language', 'Rails 4 in Action', and 'Designing Hypermedia APIs'.
