Building on an unsafe foundation

10.26.2017 at Rust Belt Rust Conference


Jason Orendorff (Mozilla)

Beneath every safe programming language, library, or virtual machine is a whole lot of unsafe code. Rust is no exception. This talk will explain why “unsafe” code is allowed at all in a safe language, show the unsafe code at work inside safe features like Vec, and teach how to write a safe library that uses unsafe code.
Jason Orendorff lives just outside Nashville, Tennessee. He's a hacker for Mozilla and the coauthor of Programming Rust, the O'Reilly book with the crab on the cover. You can find Jason as @jorendorff on GitHub.
