Look inside
One month. One hour a day. That’s all it takes to start writing Rust code!

Learn Rust in a Month of Lunches teaches you the essential skills of Rust. By the time you’re done learning, you’ll be able to:

  • Build real software in Rust
  • Understand messages from the compiler and Clippy, Rust’s coding coach
  • Make informed decisions on the right types to use in any context
  • Make sense of the Rust standard library and its commonly used items
  • Use external Rust “crates” (libraries) for common tasks
  • Work with crates that use async Rust
  • Write simple declarative macros
  • Explore test driven development in Rust

Learn Rust in a Month of Lunches teaches you to write super fast and super safe Rust code in just 22 short lessons. Crystal-clear explanations and focused, relevant examples make it accessible to anyone with a beginning understanding of another programming language. You’ll go from the absolute basics all the way through to handling async Rust and writing your own macros.

about the technology

Developers love Rust! Rust is a true general purpose language, suitable for everything from system programming to web applications and games. It delivers the performance of low-level languages like C/C++ while providing memory safety, type safety, and a compiler that makes it difficult to compile bad code. Plus, Rust makes it easy to refactor your code without worrying about breaking anything. It’s a truly hassle-free programming experience.

about the book

Learn Rust in a Month of Lunches is a fast and friendly guide to Rust proficiency. Each lesson introduces a new feature of the language, from working with types to making sense of the Rust standard library. The book's examples are easy and fun to follow—such as explaining traits using role-playing game characters. Best of all, almost all code samples run in the browser-based Rust Playground. No need to install Rust to get started on a lesson!

about the reader

For both new and experienced programmers. No previous experience with Rust required.
