Grease - a message-passing approach to software development in Rust


If you happen to be near Bristol next week, it’s the ACCU annual conference, and there are a few Rust talks on the lineup. I will be there talking about “Grease”, my new proof-of-concept demonstrating how to build message-passing systems in Rust. I think this is an interesting alternative to things like Futures when it comes to writing asynchronous applications - the concept is quite old, but the implementation is very new!

I’ll drop a blog post with more details at the end of next week, but for now you can get a sneak preview of some examples (an HTTP server and a TCP echo server) at


This is today at 2pm. I’ll post a link to the recording afterwards.
