    Educational blog posts for Rust beginners

    I found this blog post really helpful. Even though it's framed as correcting lifetime "misconceptions", it helped me go from just using lifetimes to appease the compiler and avoid cloning to actually thinking about how long my data is being held onto.

  • mrustc

    Alternative rust compiler (re-implementation)

    Lifetime sigils couldn't change the structure of your program, they don't actually affect anything it it, in fact you can remove them from correct program, compile it with mrustc (which ignores lifetime marks) and it would still work.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
