Rust: Good, Fast, Cheap – Pick Three
This November 10th, GDG Hants & Surrey presents a Lightening Talk and Code Lab on Rust and how to deploy it using Cloud Run. Sign up now at: gdg.community.dev/gdg-hants-surrey
Hundreds of companies around the world are using Rust in production today for fast, low-resource, cross-platform solutions. Software you know and love, like Firefox, Dropbox, and Cloudflare, uses Rust. From start-ups to large corporations, from embedded devices to scalable web services, Rust is a great fit
However, in today’s lightning talk we’ll focus on another feature of Rust that doesn’t get as much attention: Rust is CHEAP!
Cloud Run Code Lab
Cloud Run is a managed compute platform that enables you to run stateless containers that are invocable via HTTP requests. Cloud Run is serverless: it abstracts away all infrastructure management, so you can focus on what matters most — building great applications.
Any language, any library, any binary
Use the programming language of your choice, any language or operating system libraries, or even bring your own binaries.
Leverage container workflows and standards
Only pay when your code is running, billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds.
In this Code Lab, we will walk you through the steps of creating a simple web application and deploying it to Cloud Run. The application will be developed in Rust which makes it memory-safe and fast. In the world of Cloud Run, fast means cheap!
