AboutTutor(s)BreakdownKey Info

This course will teach you the fundamentals of Rust, a modern programming language that has the both the power of native code as well as the safety of some managed languages. In this course you will learn the following:

  • How to download and install Rust; how to compile programs and (optionally) work with an IDE.
  • Learn about fundamental data types and how to use them to declare variables.
  • Undersand arrays, vectors and strings, the concept of slices.
  • Learn to create functions, methods, closures, higher-order functions.
  • Understand how to create various data structures such as structs and enums; also traits.
  • Master Rust’s explicit take on the concept of lifetime with ownership, borrowing, lifetime specifiers, lifetime elision.
  • Learn how to safely share data around your (possibly multithreaded) application with Rc, Arc and Mutex.
  • Use Rust’s package managent using Cargo.
  • Learn about other useful topics: documentation, conditional compilation, testing.

This course, like all my other courses, will be supplemented with additional lectures based on participants’ requests.
