Rust Mentors

Our mentors are the human element behind Exercism, providing empathetic feedback on learners' solutions.

Alex Kavanagh

Rust is a refreshing alternative to C, C++ and golang. I find it elegant, relatively concise and very interesting to use. I've not used in professionally, yet, but have many years of C, JavaScript and Python under my belt.

Andrew Radev

Rust is a language that feels as comfortable as the next Ruby. While I can't say I'm an expert quite yet, I've taught a university course in it, so I hope I've picked up enough skill to help beginners out.

Maira Kodama

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.

Paul Otto

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.

Sebastian Magri

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.

Peter Tillemans

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.

Karthik Deepak Natraj

I love Rust and C and use them at my day job in automotive. I work with Embedded software but I'm also reasonably familiar with systems programming as well

Eric Dattore

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.

David Carroll

My primary professional language is Python, which I like for its flexibility and expressiveness, but I also enjoy using Rust because of its power and high-quality tooling. I'm a former CS professor.

Bert Proesmans

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.

Alpha Shuro

Rust empowers developers to write code that is ambitious, fast and correct. Viva Rust!

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.

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.

I use Rust professionally in my day job, as well as for some hobby projects. I like it for a lot of technical reasons, but most of all for the great community.

I'm a physicist and hobbyist programmer. I've been a Rust enthusiast since shortly before 1.0. I love Rust for its speed and safety, its typesystem, clean design, cargo and overall focus on correctness that help me offload so much worry on the compiler.

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.

I love Rust and its community. The way the Rust compiler talks to the user makes me want to hug it.
