&lt;p&gt;Agenda:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;0. Intro &amp;amp; Welcome&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;1. A Primer on Asynchronous Programming in Rust - Senyo Simpson&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Ever wonder how servers have become increasingly capable of handling huge numbers of concurrent connections? How we&#39;ve gone from handling small scale systems to &quot;planetary-scale&quot; systems? One piece of this puzzle is asynchronous programming. In this talk, we&#39;re doing a semi deep dive into the world of asynchronous programming and Rust&#39;s approach to it.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;2. The Rusty Dinosaur - Implementing a Web API in Deno with Rust - Duncan Dean&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Deno (pronounced like the Flintstones character) is described as a simple, modern, and secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript, that just like Node.js uses Chrome’s V8 under the hood.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Deno is built in Rust and aims to be as compatible as possible with Web standards. We’ll be looking at a bit of the internals of Deno and how to implement our own Web API within it.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;3. Good-byes&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;This event is sponsored by our friends at &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.peachpayments.com/&quot;&gt;Peach Payments&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;</p>
