In this course, I’ll be explaining simple concepts of coding in Rust. You’ll learn all the basics: printing to screen, creating variables, doing simple math, conditionals, tuples, arrays, etc. This is a simple steady-paced course that can be effective for anyone who has an interest in coding in Rust. You could be someone with experience in another language or someone entirely new to coding.
I’ll be teaching using an online IDE, called replit, which serves its purpose great. You can sign-up for free, create a repl, and start following along with the lectures in a few minutes.
Rust is a statically-typed programming language designed for performance and safety. Its syntax is similar to that of C++. It is an open-source project developed originally at Mozilla Research. It has many applications, and in this course, we’ll be sticking to the basics.
I will be explaining code snippets and there will be a link to the repl that I’m discussing in the lecture resources. You can then fork it, and change the names and arguments in the code to come up with additional examples for each concept. Or you can use copy/paste.
This course is a beginner-friendly breeze and will allow anyone to effectively grasp the core concepts of Rust in just a short amount of time.
What you’ll learn
- Basic Syntax
- Math, string functions
- Decision-making, functions, loops
- Arrays, Vectors, Tuples
Familiarity with programming concepts is recommended but not required.
