Learning Days: Rust
December 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Rust is a modern systems language pursuing the trifecta, Safe, Fast and Concurrent. It gives you C-like control over the machine along with powerful type system providing leading levels of control over resources using advances from the past 40 years or programming language research. This packaged up with best in class package management and build tooling results in a practical, enjoyable language suited for many traditionally incompatible problem domains.
What will you learn?
This workshop will provide a practical overview of the fundamentals of Rust from familiar concepts from other languages (eg functions, types, build tools) and ones that may be less familiar (eg static memory management, Sum/Tagged Union types, Traits).
Building on those fundamental concepts we'll also cover day to day idioms such as code organisation (modules, crates), error handling (Option, Result), unit testing and some practical examples and coding exercises covering practical tasks.
Non-Farset Labs Members are asked to donate £5 to the upkeep of the space. (Equivalent to our Day Passes)
