ACCU is the UK’s foremost annual conference for those interested in C++ and C.

Jonathan Pallant, Senior Technical Consultant and Embedded Systems Engineer, will provide an overview on the design of protocol stacks using a message-passing architecture and demonstrating a novel implementation of these concepts in the Rust Programming Language. See full details below.

Grease: a message-passing approach to protocol stacks in Rust

Date | Friday 13th April 2018
Time | 14.00
Speaker | Jonathan Pallant
Location | SS Brunel Room

This talk will introduce the basic layout of a typical protocol stack and the message passing architecture we have used in several large projects, based on ITU X.200. This will be followed by a live walk through of 'Grease' – an implementation of these message passing concepts in the Rust programming language.

Who should attend:

  • Software engineers with an interest in protocol stack design
  • Software engineers interested in building large systems in Rust

What you will learn:

  • How protocol stack software differs from other kinds of large applications and how a layered approach to software design may help your next project
  • Some of the advantages Rust has over alternative languages, such as C
