Rust data structures with circular references

An Open Source Vibrotactile Haptics Platform for On-Body Applications.

Anycast in Segment Routing

Issue #125



¯\_( ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)_/¯
Realized I forgot to mention in the previous issue that I wrote my first technical article over the weekend. Let me know if you have any feedback! Someone already commented that I should use excalidraw so that my diagrams look like a talented 5 year old drew them, rather than a regular one. Here's that issue!


Rust data structures with circular references

Rust's marvelous memory safety system comes at a cost; it's kind of a pain to implement data structures that have circular references. In this exploratory article, Eli Bendersky tries several different approaches for implementing structures that have circular references (like binary search trees).

I'm guessing how we interface with technology is going to change a lot in the next 50 years. In this article, Artem Dementyev presents a "low-power miniature electronics board" that might be one of the first steps in having extensive tactile sensation with technology (this is how I can imagine it being used). Artem dives into the inner workings of board and describes all of its functionality.

There are a lot of technologies that go into making the internet work. Among these, routing protocols are of vital importance. Dmytro Shypovalov's technical article explains how segment routing, a modern variant of source routing that is being developed within the SPRING and IPv6 working groups of the IETF, can enable the use of anycast routing to be more widespread.
