      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.
