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.

Thanks for sharing! I'm interested in attending this conference! I'm curious to learn about this new proof-of-concept called ""Grease"" and how it could be used to write asynchronous applications. It sounds like it could be a really interesting and useful tool. As someone looking to become an expert in healthcare software development (, I am willing to put in the hard work to learn everything I can about the subject. I have already started learning about different software development languages and tools, and I am confident I can become an expert in this field.

FYI, the post you responded to is 5 years old.

The talk was five years ago, and the repo looks to have been barely touched since then. You might be interested in tower though.
