Description

Get Rusty: A Brief Introduction to the Rust Programming Language

This workshop will be a short introduction to Rust.

Rust is a modern, low-level language that is super fast, like Sonic the Hedgehog, but also has incredible safety guarantees: type safety (eh), thread safety (ay), and segfault prevention (ayyyy!).

What we'll cover:

  • Rust basics

  • Cargo: Rust's package manager

  • Neat-o Rust features that make high-level languages envious

  • Some practical examples of the compiler catching a thread-safety issue

Where is the Event?

This event will be held in the International Building at TRU, in room IB 1010.

What should I bring?

  • A laptop

  • A text editor you like (Notepad++, Sublime Text, anything really)

  • Rust installed -- follow the instructions at https://rustup.rs (make sure cargo is added to the PATH)
