Would Rust make you a better Pythonista?
07-19, 12:10–12:55 (Europe/Prague), South Hall 2B

What would a Pythonista gain from becoming a Rustacean other than semicolons and brackets?

In this talk I'll share the learnings and achievements I got by adding the Rust programming language into my Python life. Illustrating a real story now in production at scale, I'll walk you through all the pains and joys of this unexpected journey which changed me more than I anticipated.

Proposed agenda:
- Project introduction
- Motivations of selecting this project to learn Rust
- Tales of a Pythonista learning Rust
- Results, numbers and production graphs
- How Rust influences my daily Python
- Was it worth it? Should you do it too?
