I have not been writing much for my blog in the past year. The main reason for that was joining a very interesting project - writing a compiler and a runtime for secure multiparty computation. I learned a lot in the past year, including some odd tricks that are not too well known in the community and one that is not known at all.
I will be writing a series of blog posts about cool things I learned in Rust. I'll start with a post about
nom - my favourite parser library. There were a few discoveries made tuning it for performance.
Eventually my parser was able to significantly outperform msgpack. Then will be a post about "ppor man's specialization" - a cool trick and a way to use it to provide custom compiler error messages. There will be more
posts after that.
