The Rust Programming Language
This course will teach you the fundamentals of Rust, a modern programming language that has both the power of native code as well as the safety of some managed languages. In this course you will learn the following:
- How to download and install Rust; how to compile programs and (optionally) work with an IDE.
- Learn about fundamental data types and how to use them to declare variables.
- Understand arrays, vectors, and strings, the concept of slices.
- Learn to create functions, methods, closures, higher-order functions.
- Understand how to create various data structures such as structs and enums; also traits.
- Master Rust’s explicit take on the concept of the lifetime with ownership, borrowing, lifetime specifiers, lifetime elision.
- Learn how to safely share data around your (possibly multithreaded) application with Rc, Arc, and Mutex.
- and also use Rust’s package management using Cargo.
- Also, learn about other useful topics: documentation, conditional compilation, testing.
This course, like all my other courses, will be supplemented with additional lectures based on participants’ requests.
Who is the target audience?
- Systems programmers
- Experienced developers interested in Rust
- Also, C/C++ programmers
Requirements for The Rust Programming Language
- Basic knowledge of computer science
- and also a computer with a Rust-enabled IDE (VisualRust, intellij-rust, etc.)
What Will I Learn?
- Solve problems in Rust
- and understand Rust’s strengths and weaknesses
- Effectively leverage Rust’s memory safety guarantees
- and, write applications and libraries
- Also, learn to test and document your code
