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.

Meet the Rust Track mentors

Once you join the Rust language track, you will receive support and feedback from our team of mentors. Here are the bios of a few of the mentors of this track.

Rust is a revolutionary language that is growing and improving fast. I am proud to have been promoting Rust in my own company leading to incredible results. It covers low-level programming while offering high-level abstractions which for systems developers, it's a blessing.

French developper for more than 20 years in Management Systems, i was insterested in several languages and technologies like C++, Java, PHP, etc. But recently, i chose Rust in my projects for its rigor and its discipline that makes stable its use.

I study IT in Bavaria, Germany. Rust is one of my favourite languages because of its expressive type system, its strong safety guarantees and good WASM support. I also code a lot in Java, Kotlin, JS and Typescript.

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.

Rust manages to meld low-level programming with high-level abstractions without any of the tradeoffs. Here to help in the inaugural battle against the borrow-checker and to foster the inner Rustacean in all of us.
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 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.

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!
