For the second year in a row, for my birthday, I took some time off work to learn some new things. This year it was Rust. (Last year it was the DHT Kademlia) I enjoyed spending two days with Rust. I didn't get very far (about 80% of "the book") but I did get far enough to learn a number of things and come up with a short list for further research. I'm looking forward to getting back to it.
I kept most of my notes on twitter/mastodon;
