Abstract: The Rust programming language has an interesting history with effects. The borrow checker is a practical adaptation of Cyclone’s memory region system, which in turn can be traced back to other effectful languages such as FX-87. Rust since its 1.0 release in 2015 has introduced additional effect-like extensions to the language such as “const” and “async”, and is working to introduce even more in the future.

Bio: Yosh works on WebAssembly and Rust at Microsoft. They are a member of the Rust Async WG, co-lead of the Rust effects initiative, and a recognized contributor of the Bytecode Alliance. They live in sunny Copenhagen, together with their partner and two beautiful fluffy cats.
