Over the course of the past few months, I've done occasional Rust live-coding sessions where I (we) have built tsunami, a library for running short jobs and experiments on EC2, as well as a crate for doing asynchronous SSH. So far there are videos covering everything from basic library design and development to using various interesting and useful Rust crates; you can find them all in this YouTube playlist. I've found this incredibly fun, and I'm amazed at the number of people who have found them useful! The fact that so many of you have reached out to say that you've learned something makes me want to keep doing this for a long time. I made this page so that people who are interested can watch the progression of these videos, and other projects I happen upon along the way, and contribute to me making more videos if you're able!

As for the bit about me: I'm a grad student at MIT who enjoys designing and building interesting software, especially if that software is then useful to others! Apart from the live-coding videos, I write and maintain several open-source projects, including Rust implementations of HdrHistogram, Faktory, WebDriver, and the IMAP protocol. I'm also doing research on building a fast new database engine.

If Patron won't work for you for whatever reason, you can also find me on liberapay.

Going forward I'll be writing up my thoughts for upcoming videos and projects, and post some of them as backer-only. Hopefully these will give you a more detailed idea of what will be covered. As a backer, you'll also have a greater ability to influence both what topics we get into the weeds of in the live-coding sessions, and the kinds of applications and libraries we build, by giving feedback earlier in the process!

I'll make sure to mention you in a "thank you" section on the various libraries and applications we end up creating up through the series!

You'll be in the top part of the thank you section! \o/

You'll also make me really happy :D

$50 is an amazing amount of money to give to a stranger. I'll be immensely grateful, and also point you out during live-coding sessions for being awesome!
Goals
$74 of $150 per month
At $150/month I'll commit to bi-weekly live-coding sessions!
