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

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

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

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 spent a lot of time inside its documentation, on the users forum and IRC. I'm almost celebrating my first year of Rust development.

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 am an electronics engineer and language geek who learned programming on an hp-41 and C-64. Now I do mostly java, javascript, python, rust and haskell. I believe that code should sing its intent so the last row in the hall understands the last syllable.

I am a C++ and Python developer who is learning Rust. I feel that teaching is a great way to learn, so I am hoping to give back a little while learning more myself.

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.

Get started with the Rust track. As with everything on Exercism, it's 100% free!
