Lecture: Rust for the recalcitrant C++ programmer

Andy teaches CB about neat features of Rust and CB tries to show that they have what they need in C++.

Andy has been working in Rust and is excited to share his experience of all the positive features that he has found useful.

CB has decades of experience with C++ and years of experience in other languages and is sceptical of the need to invest time in another language. They have reluctantly agreed to "hear Andy out" and are confident that they have everything which they need in C++ to tackle the same sort of problems that these Rust features are supposed to help with.

Andy is looking forward to demonstrating ownership, the type system, immutability, pattern matching, safe concurrency, helpful compiler messages and, worryingly for CB, the package ecosystem.
