Rust India July meet-up Details of the talks and venue about Rust India’s meetup on 8 July at Juspay (Koramangala, Bangalore) are updated here more
On 23 July 2022, Rootconf held a Birds of Feather discussion on whether Rust language is ready for adoption in enteprises at India FOSS 2.0 conference. The discussion showed that the question must be inverted - are Indian startups and enteprises ready for adopting Rust language? This Mini Conference will look at the following problem statements:
- “We want to build with Rust, what do we need to know” - for businesses and developers who will want to use Rust to develop solutions for specific use cases, what should they want to be aware of before they commit to this journey?
- “Designing things with Rust language” - exploring components and technical details of Rust language with a focus on building things. For e.g. connected mesh of internet of things, integrating Rust with other languages, monitoring dashboards, search engines, embedded systems, distributed systems and WASM.
- “Wait up! What about security and all the related topics” - evaluating software supply chain security, project stewardship, evolution of the language, tools and documentation, speed/memory related shaping and benchmarking, support for libraries.
- “Where are the Rust language jobs around us” - addressing the topic of growing the community to create a viable and long-term talent pool for businesses to acquire confidence while investing on their Rust language journey.
The Call for Proposals (CfP) is open. Talks will be curated by the conference editor, Rajasekharan Vengalil to fit the theme and sub topics.

Using Rust for building multimedia pipelines using GStreamer
A short primer on how Rust and GStreamer can be used for building multimedia pipelines. The back end application started out as a monolith written in Python utilizing GStreamer for multimedia bits. Iteratively parts of the application were moved over from Python by writing custom GStreamer components in Rust.
The talk will describe our experience in leveraging Rust and GStreamer to build a back end for a live-streaming and recording service.
