atuin: magical shell history with Rust

useful shell history on all of your machines

Atuin aims to make your experience with your shell history delightful. It stores every command and the context around it (eg, directory it ran in, duration, etc) in a SQLite database, and then provides fuzzy search on top of that. Along with the Atuin sync server, this history can be made available on every machine the user has.

I'll be walking the audience through how the project works, what problems it solves, as well as how it was implemented. I will assume the audience has some working familiarity with the shell, but the talk will be friendly for Rust beginners or anyone curious about the language.
