A Deep Dive into Ruby Through Rust

Have you ever wondered how your programming language works under the hood? As someone who's loved Ruby for years, I never gave it much thought. Then I got involved in Rust. Rust is much more low-level, and learning about how it works has also taught me a lot about how Ruby works.

In this talk, we'll take some Rust, and use it to show off the internals of another programming language, Ruby. We'll learn a bit more about both languages in the process.

Talk objectives:

  • Showing off Rust
  • Learning more about Ruby

Target audience:

  • People interested in Rust, people who have used dynamic typed languages who are interested in learning about a more functional, statically typed language.
