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/2018-edition/.

Exercism is a great website

Exercism is a great website where I was able to have some very interesting challenges.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

Writes Javascript/ES and Python at work, discovered Rust and find it expressive despite being a system langauge. Would love to contribute back by mentoring.

Math teacher turned programmer. Fell in love with Rust while listening to Steve Klabnik talk about its design choices. Eternally grateful for helpful compiler messages. Not tall enough to write multi-threaded code.

I love Rust for its type-safety, its approach to memory management, and its helpful compiler messages. I currently use Rust in side projects, and I'm working towards getting Rust into use at work.

I've been playing with Rust as my hobby language of choice since version 0.10. Before that, I was using C++ for a lot of my side projects.

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.
Fun. Challenging. Interesting
