My talk “The Sheer Terror of PAM” was accepted to RustConf! It’s about making a Rust project at Tailscale and navigating the minefield full of lasers that is PAM’s C module API utilizing our crab overlord to gracefully jump over all the hazards. Served remote with laundry sauce.

Someone wrote a really fun study about the CPU and Time overhead of Garbage Collectors in the JDK.

The paper finds that a GC can cost you somewhere north of 80% of CPU cycles and Time (ie, 80% more CPU cycles or Time used due to GC) at minimum and concludes that a low overhead GC remains "elusive".

And hence I like Rust, where the GC is a lie and my Types are turbofishing into yesterday.
