This talk by Joao from Fastly about how they scaled their networks is interesting. I think you can replace _networks_ with any sufficiently complicated problem. The thinking behind their approach is the most interesting part. usenix.org/conference/srecon15

I've been working on a couple of experiments in vector types for that are optimized for narrow width:

github.com/Gankro/thin-vec (1 word wide; requires nightly Rust, but @Gankro is pushing to stabilize the required APIs)

crates.io/crates/mediumvec (2 words wide on 64-bit platforms; works on stable Rust; not highly optimized yet)

Interviewed a person who had a long history in C++. I was wearing one of many shirts and we talked about rust for a little bit. He had never heard of it and said he would check it out. We are making an offer and we don't use C++ or rust, but a cool exchange nonetheless.
