Abstract

Rust has finally shipped async/await! It took us a long time, and that's because Rust's implementation works a bit differently than in other languages. In this talk, we'll go over the deep details of how async/await works in Rust, covering concepts like coroutines, generators, stack-less vs stack-ful, "pinning", and more!
