About Rust

pub fn hello() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, World!"

Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. It aims to bring modern language design and an advanced type system to systems programming. Rust does not use a garbage collector, using advanced static analysis to provide deterministic drops instead. It accomplishes this via the concept of ownership.

Rust's core and the standard library are intentionally minimal; batteries are not included. Rustaceans are instead encouraged to add libraries, called crates, to the language by sharing them on crates.io.

Rust is most frequently used for applications where speed, performance and stability are essential. The Awesome Rust list collects examples of Rust projects, which include CLI tools, ORMs, operating systems and games. Regardless of what you build in Rust, it will be fast and memory safe!

The home page for Rust is rust-lang.org. Rust has excellent documentation at rust-lang.org/documentation.html. Newcomers should start with "The Book" located at doc.rust-lang.org/book/.

Exercism is a great website

The reviews are incredibly helpful because they help me see things that I missed, learn about new ways and sometimes interesting discussions that can add a fun twist to maybe a simple problem.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

Rust brings an expressive type-system to low-level perfomance and portability. The WASM support ties in particularly well with web development where I spend most of my time and I'm excited to join others on this learning path.

Using a mixture of C and Rust code at work for bare metal and linux embedded programming since mid 2017. Having done 10+ years of professional Java programming before. Also in love with Clojure, Haskell and functional programming in general.

I been using Rust both at work and as a hobby for a while now. Its an awesome project that makes it easy to learn and contribute, and improves really fast while remaining compliant with its principles.

I am a self-taught programmer with a background in liberal arts. I work with Python professionally in the intersection between software development and deep learning. In my spare time, I also play with Go, Rust, and Swift.

I am a student and spend most of my time hacking on personal projects. I enjoy Rust as it makes some of the more painful parts of programming easier to handle.
Fun. Challenging. Interesting

Meet the Rust Track maintainers

The Rust Maintainers are the brains behind the Rust Track. They spend their spare time creating interesting and challenging exercises that we can all learn from. We are incredibly grateful for their hard work. Here are the bios of a few of the maintainers of this track.

I love Rust for being strict, performant, ergonomic and enjoyable at the same time. After being a mentor for some time, I decided to be a maintainer. Looking forward to it!

I love real-world, usable examples. I'm a huge fan of being able to help others to make something work how it should with maximum performance. I especially love Rust and have written a tool called BrewStillery in it and GTK-rs.
