Learn Rust by Building Real Applications
What you'll learn
- The fundamentals of the Rust Programming Language
- Low level memory management
- Rust’s unique approach to memory safety
- How to troubleshoot common compiler errors
- Basic Computer Science Knowledge
- Experience in at least one other programming language
You have probably heard of the Rust Programming Language - a modern systems language that is blazingly fast, guarantees memory safety without the use of a garbage collector and most importantly is fun to write. It has a great community and excellent tooling. These are just some of the reasons why Rust was voted the most loved programming language for five years in a row. Rust is the proof that systems programmers can have nice things.
In this course you will learn the fundamentals of Rust. The format will be a bit different than most other courses. Instead of jumping between unrelated concepts in every video and showing examples that have nothing to do with the real world use of the language, we will learn entirely through practice.
Together we will build real Rust applications and introduce new concepts when we need them to solve actual problems.
To start there will be a short theoretical section on low level memory management.
Then to introduce the basics of Rust we will build a simple command line application. This will provide us with the necessary knowledge to tackle a much larger project.
For our big project we will build a working HTTP server from scratch. We will write our custom implementation of the HTTP protocol and we will build a functioning web server with it. This will let us introduce all of the fundamental and some advanced features of the Rust language.
Who this course is for:
- Developers interested in a safe systems programming language
I'm a senior software engineer with over 10 years of experience working for a variety of companies.
For most of my career I was at Amazon and AWS where I got to work on various projects, from designing and building high scale distributed systems to optimising the performance of low level streaming protocols.
Now I want to share my passion for Rust with you!
