Building an asynchronous ZooKeeper client in Rust

- Published on Jul 1, 2018馃審 Public

In this stream, we're implementing an asynchronous ZooKeeper client library in Rust using the tokio crate and futures. The goal of this session is mainly to write the necessary internals, including connection setup, the ZooKeeper protocol, with the ultimate goal of being able to call some ZooKeeper function. See also some of the discussion on We'll tackle higher-level ZooKeeper functions in a later stream. This means that this stream is primarily for those who want to learn about asynchronous programming in Rust, with a particular focus on asynchronous networking. It should be accessible for most intermediate Rust programmers though, and the goal is for us all to learn together! This video is intended for users who are already somewhat familiar with Rust, but who want to see something larger and more involved be built.

There will be several more videos that either cover new topics (see Twitter) or that complete ones we've started in the past (like async-ssh: The code we ended up with is available here:
