Code Like A Pro in Rust is a fast-track guide to building and delivering professional quality software in Rust. You’ll upgrade your basic knowledge of Rust with conventions, best practices, and veteran’s secrets that are normally only learned through years of experience. Skip the fluff and get right to the heart of this powerful modern language, including Rust’s support for asynchronous programming and integrating Rust with codebases written in other languages.
about the technology
Programmers prize Rust for its safety, performance, and security. However, its strict syntax and tricky memory management can make it challenging to master. This practical guide shows you how to balance Rust’s trade offs, lessen its cognitive load, and rapidly bring your productivity to a professional level.
about the book
Code Like a Pro in Rust shows you how to quickly create and ship Rust programs without wasting time on language quirks, compiler problems, and unexpected complexities. It builds on your existing Rust knowledge with design patterns and shortcuts direct from veteran Rust contributor Brenden Matthews. You’ll learn to use important Rust tooling like rust-analyzer, Clippy, and Cargo, as well as best practices for unit testing and code optimization. By the time you’re done, you’ll be writing high quality code with less maintenance overhead.
