[Video 172] Chris Morgan: Fast, secure, safe: the web that can still be

The Web is amazing, for sure — but it has also failed to live up to many of our (and its) initial promises. There are a lot of bad guys out there, making it unsafe for ordinary people.  It’s not as secure as we would like.  And of course, it’s not as fast as we would like.  What does this mean, and what can we do about it? In this talk, Chris Morgan describes a number of ways in which the Web’s infrastructure can and should change, so that we can benefit even more from the Web as it currently exists. If you’re a web developer, then you’ll likely identify with many of the things mentioned in this talk.  It’ll also explain some of the motivations for the Rust language, and the ways in which Rust tries to improve on other languages in all of these areas.
