We're back! And it's fuzzy!

Where
Jobindex, Holger Danskes Vej 91, Frederiksberg
When
18:00—22:00

After a long hiatus, we are starting up again with Rust hack nights. Our first meeting of 2018 will feature a presentation titled Rust and Fuzz Testing, delivered by the good folks at Seasoned.Software:

At Seasoned.Software we build a CI platform that uses fuzz testing to improve the quality of your software projects. We love Rust and we use it for most of our platform, and we support Rust projects as first class citizens. We will give a brief presentation on how Rust helped us build our platform, which problems we have encountered so far, and how we solved them. Afterwards we will explain why you should fuzz test your own projects and show how to set up fuzz testing for your own Rust projects.

The presentation is expected to start around 19:00, but you are welcome to get in early from 18:00.

Anyone is welcome, regardless of Rust proficiency (in fact, the hackathons are great places to pick up new knowledge fast).
