My Python's a little Rust-y

Dan Callahan

Audience level:


Rust is a new systems programming language from Mozilla that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance... and it plays nice with ctypes! Come learn how you can call Rust functions from Python code and finally say goodbye to hacking C!


Learn how to extend your Python programs with high-performance functions written in Rust. Plus, get a brief overview of the Rust programming language, what it's good at, and why you might prefer it over C for your next project requiring low-level optimization.
