Nicholas has been doing yeoman’s work on speeding up the Rust compiler. This is the latest in a long line of contributions to tackle what has been one of Rust’s most persistent problems: long compile times.
He’s also written about tools and concepts for crate maintainers to understand and improve their own compile-times:
He’s also contributed to useful profiling tooling!
All this to say: huge thank you to Nicholas, and if you’re interested in learning how to do real-world performance work, these posts are an excellent resource!
And thank you for all the links!
