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.

I write mostly C# professionally, but I have a passion for functional programming and lately Rust. I look forward to helping you anyway I can!

Although rust does have a steeper learning curve than many other languages, once you understand it, it is a truly incredible language.

I'm a Rustacean since 5 years and member of the Rust project. I lead the events team and contirbute to the community team. I own a Rust company. I train Rust professionally, but still got a lot to learn.

For me, Rust and Cryptography has been a perfect match. As I grow my own company, I plan on sticking with Rust and want to help encourage people to pick it up.
