Hands-on introduction to Rust
Thursday March 12, 09:00 - 17:30
Haven't done any Rust? Want to know what makes Rust so special? Want the ability to ask two highly experienced Rust developers nuanced questions? Join us as we go hands-on with Rust, starting from an empty file and learning about the Rust ecosystem, pervasive and unique-to-Rust concepts, and areas where Rust truly shines.
- Cargo, the Rust build tool and dependency manager
- Syntax basics and documentation
- Iterating and iterators
- Making our own types
- Strings and user input
- Error handling
- The module system
- Ownership and borrowing
Common programming concepts like control flow and variables, then unique-to-Rust ideas like ownership and borrowing.
Anyone who wants to experience Rust for the first time or get further than "Hello, World!".
Basic knowledge of the command line and programming concepts.
A laptop with the current version of Rust installed, capable of compiling the default Rust "Hello, World!" program and a preferred text editor.

He is a member of the Rust Infrastructure Team, maintainer of the Rust Playground, and manages several Rust crates in the areas of error handling, parsing, XML, hashing, and assembly intrinsics. He may be best known for being the number 1 contributor on the Rust tag on Stack Overflow.
Co-founder, Integer 32
Carol is the co-author of The Rust Programming Language book and a member of the Rust core team. She's a co-founder of the world's first Rust-focused consultancy, Integer 32. She enjoys connecting folks by running the Rust Belt Rust Conference. She's interested in how we can improve our fundamental assumptions and tools as an industry to prevent causing harm to the people using the software we write.
