Intro to Rust

Steve Klabnik

Half-day workshop - in English

Rust is a systems programming language focused on three things: safety, speed, and concurrency.

In this workshop, Steve will teach you Rust through sample programs showing off these three aspects. Many of these will not even require Rust to be on your system, and will use https://play.rust-lang.org/ extensively, so all you'll need is a web browser. Some more advanced examples will require the Rust compiler, so to get the most out of it, you may want to install Rust 1.7 from https://www.rust-lang.org/

Primarily for: Developers

Participant requirements: A laptop with a modern browser. For advanced examples install Rust 1.7 from https://www.rust-lang.org/
