you may or may not remember me for speaking about Rust at several usergroups and events. I'm now co-organising the Rust usersgroup and we have a celebration: Rust 1.0 will be released on May 15th.
Rust is a modern systems programming language, statically typed and built with parallelism in mind. It is a good secondary language to more high-level languages.
We'll have two introductory talks to the language and the event. The event attempts to be as beginner-friendly as possible (you are hearing about a new language, after all!).
