On February 2, 2020, one of FP Complete's Lead Software Engineers—Mike McGirr—presented a webinar on using Rust for creating DevOps tooling.
FP Complete is hosting a functional programming
webinar on, “Learn Rapid Rust with DevOps Success
Strategies.” A beginner’s guide including sample Rust
demonstration on writing your DevOps tools with Rust
over Haskell. An introduction to Rust, with basic DevOps
use cases, and the library ecosystem, airing on
February 5th, 2020.
The webinar will be hosted by Mike McGirr, a DevOps
Software Engineer at FP Complete which will provide an
abundance of Rust information with respect to
functional programming and DevOps, featuring (safety,
speed and accuracy) that make it unique and contributes
to its popularity, and its possible preference as a
language of choice for operating systems over Haskell,
web browsers and device drivers among others. The
webinar offers an interesting opportunity to learn and
use Rust in developing real world projects aside from
Haskell or other functional programming languages
During the webinar we will cover the following
- A quick intro and background into the Rust programming language
- Some scenarios and reasons why you would want to use Rust for writing your DevOps tooling (and some reasons why you wouldn’t)
- A small example of using the existing AWS libraries to create a basic DevOps tool
- How to Integrate FP into your Organization
Mike Mcgirr, a Lead Software Engineer at FP
Complete,will help us understand reasoning that
supports using Rust over other functional programming
languages offered in the market today.
More about your host
The webinar will be hosted by Mike McGirr, a veteran
DevOps Software Engineer at FP Complete. With years of
experience in DevOps software development, Mike will
walk us through a first in a series of Rust webinars
discussing why we would, and how we could utilize Rust
as a functional programming language to build DevOps
over other functional programming languages available
in the market today. Mike will also share with us a
small example script written in Rust showing how Rust
may be used.
