Zig's I/O and Concurrency Story

Zig Talks Day (Fri) • 16:00 • Duration: 45m

Async I/O and concurrency have come to be features expected from any general purpose language. Zig is in a unique spot where it has interesting ideas but hasn’t settled on any yet. With the rise of multi-core CPUs and io_uring, the landscape for concurrent programming is shifting and it’s important that Zig adapts. Instead of providing solutions, let’s explore what the options are and discuss the status quo, the Future (no pun intended), and what it all means for a language and ecosystem in development.
