2) Low-level Rust: Fine, I’ll Just Make My Own Stable ABI, with Compact sum-types and Stable rustc!
This talk was initially presented at RustConf 23!
Always wanted a stable ABI that could model all of Rust’s features? Curious about what ABI even means and why it matters? Or keen to learn how to abuse the type system’s Turing completeness? Then this talk is for you.
In this talk, Pierre will guide you through the process of creating a stable ABI for Rust (stabby) as a library that supports niche optimizations in enums and multi-trait objects, letting you use all of Rust across the dynamic linkage frontier.
Pierre Avital, PhD, is a core contributor to Eclipse Zenoh, a networking middleware that turns your distributed systems into a single high-throughput event bus (and RPC framework), from a microcontroller with a single BLE interface to the cloud.
After using Rust professionally since 1.28 (in the olden times before async/await), he’s decided to make dynamic linkage more friendly for Rustaceans.
👋 See you there!
