Introducing Rust-WebSocket

Posted January 30th, 2015 by

Rust-WebSocket is a project of mine, written in Rust which provides WebSocket functionality for other projects to use.

It basically provides a way to implement a server and client using the WebSocket protocol – allowing real-time communication between a server and a client. The browser you use probably supports WebSocket, and many games and chat applications use it to allow you to get updated data without having to refresh the page.

I’ll talk a bit more about how this works in later posts.

You can check out the library, maybe fork it, make changes and submit a pull request, from here on GitHub.

Year 12

Posted January 30th, 2015 by

So today marks the first real day of year 12 for me, and it’s been good so far… That might just be because I only have three classes today though; Tuesday is going to be a busy day – seven periods of class immediately followed by 1.5 hours of string ensemble – at least I don’t have weird gaps in the day. Luckily on Wednesday I only have two classes and can then go home.

This year I’ve got five subjects: English, Algorithmics, Phyiscs, Chemistry and Specialist Maths. I have pretty good teachers for those subjects, so that’s good for me. It should hopefully be a good year.

While doing five subjects means I have free periods (or ‘study’ periods, as they call it), I only have one of them where I’ll actually be at school, since the others are placed nicely so I don’t have to show up. Incidentally, that one study period I have is the one I’m using to write this. Maybe this means I’ll write a post every week? No, I don’t think it does, but perhaps a little more frequently than just once or twice per month.

That’s all for now. More blogging to come at a later date.

2015

Posted January 16th, 2015 by

So I haven’t posted anything since last month – and by extension last year, as it is now 2015, which promises to be my final year of high school. VCE swimming pool analogies, I’m ready for you now.

I haven’t done a whole lot in in the holidays, which are quickly diminishing – no music things or tutorial installments as yet, but as I keep saying, I’ll get to that eventually… I think.

Oh, and just so you know, I managed to achieve Year 11 Dux for 2014, entitling me to a $50 reduction in my year 12 textbook costs – hooray for me. Hopefully I’ll be able to maintain my standards this year.

On another note, I’ve been doing a lot of programming lately, which has been consuming a lot of my time. I’ve been experimenting with Rust, which is a very interesting language indeed. I like it – I like it a lot. In fact, with all this programming, you’ll find most of my activity here on GitHub where I host most of my programming projects.

That’s all for now. More blogging to come at a later date.
