    20 min talk by Josh Triplett from two weeks ago. Mainly about using Rust as systems programming language by making it “feature-wise on par with C” as in, for example,

    • no runtime
    • no GC and so on.

    He also points out where Rust hasn’t reached parity with C yet (mostly as in better interoperability with C, as in varargs, union). And a new FFI working group to reach that goal.

    He also points out that following points need to be addressed:

    • binary size
    • more robust inline assembly proposal
    • SIMD intrinsics
    • bfloat16 Intel specific floating point format support and much more.
