Time for another live-stream! This time I thought I'd tackle #rustlang futures/tokio directly. I'll explain what futures are, how they work, and how tokio executes them. Maybe even async/await + pin! Noon EST this Saturday on https://www.youtube.com/c/JonGjengset/live and http://twitch.tv/jonfrg. For those of you in other timezones, this is the time: https://everytimezone.com/#2018-11-17,300. This will be more of a talking stream than a programming stream, though we'll likely also read some code and write some just for exposition.
(Regarding the single-column thing, you might enjoy Pinafore's UI! We have an instance running at https://light.mastodon.at/, or you can use the one hosted by the creator at https://pinafore.social/).
I'll be in NYC this weekend! Ping me if you want to chat about #rustlang, computer science, live-streams, or open-source stuff! Or pretty much anything else for that matter :p
I wish Mastodon didn't look so cramped on my vertical monitor :'( I really want just one column with all toots, and then a separate page for notifications, similar to Twitter or GitHub. Filed https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/9221 and we'll see where that might take us...
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
