See it. Do it. Learn it! In Rust in Motion, premier Rust experts Carol Nichols and Jake Goulding, introduce you to the Rust programming language! Designed for modern systems programming, Rust delivers impressive speed and thread-safe concurrency. As coauthor of The Rust Programming Language, Carol literally helped write “The Book,” as the Rust community affectionately calls it. Jake created the Rust FFI Omnibus, and he’s also the #1 contributor to the Rust tag on Stack Overflow. If you’re ready to get started writing production-quality lightning-fast systems code, this liveVideo course is for you!

About the subject

Rust’s popularity is surging among systems programmers. Aiming to be an alternative to C and C++, Rust’s extraordinary speed comes largely from its memory safety, which it achieves without resource-greedy garbage collection. Other enticing features of this hot systems programming language include its rich type system, heavy functional programming influence, and freedom from a runtime requirement. Command line applications, networking, embedded services, and WebAssembly are some of the areas where Rust really shines!

About the video

Rust in Motion is an all-access pass to Rust, brought to you by top authorities on the subject. Carol and Jake’s masterful instruction jumpstarts your learning with a spotlight on what's different and special about Rust! This skilled duo challenges you to dig deeply into the nuts and bolts of variables, primitive data types, functions, control flow constructs, defining enums and structs, and adding behavior to them with methods. You’ll learn memory management via ownership and borrowing, techniques for error handling, lifetime annotations, and other unique Rust concepts. With this liveVideo’s code examples, inspired by real-world scenarios, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running!
