Rust is a (fairly) new programming language from the Mozilla Foundation that is showing a lot of potential. It combines a lot of good ideas from other languages to provide a compelling language for many tasks.

This talk will briefly cover some of the features of the language, and discuss what might make it interesting to you and then give you chance to try it out for yourself.
