27. "The Rust Programming Language"

August 10, 2021

Rust has seen a lot of hype and praise from the developer community over the past few years despite it being a relatively new programming language (about 10 years old). Rust has been crowned the most loved language by Stackoverflow’s Developer Survery for the past 5 years straight. In this talk, I’ll give you guys a brief summary of Rust as a language and what problems it intends to address as well as why I personally enjoy using it. I’ll also do some live code examples to demonstrate Rust’s flagship feature: owner ship.

23. Testing and Agile: Academic to Practical

October 06, 2020

Waterfall development processes provide guidelines and guardrails to aid in producing quality software. Much like training wheels on a bike or speed governor on a sports car, these aids can prevent the system from reaching maximum capability. Agile projects may remove some of the impediments to performance, but at the same time increase the risk of software defects. Thus testing becomes a critical component for successful agile development.
