The Rust programming language is a boon for systems programmers because of its powerful and expressive type system and strict compile–time static analysis. Still, there are best practices to follow and idioms that the community has developed over time. This course tackles testing, building and distributing applications, and other real–world challenges using Rust, Cargo, and the Rustup toolchain manager.
You will build four projects, including a search tool, a Markdown parser, a chat server and client, and a blog. In this course, we ll progress from command line applications, built with proper command line argument parsing and error handling, to more complex applications like a GUI text editor and several web applications. We ll explore asynchronous programming and concurrent programming in Rust using real–world scenarios like file searching and stress testing. Finally, we ll build a simple web app that interacts with a database in a type–safe manner using Diesel.
By the end of the course, you will be adept with the knowledge of Rust to practically implement it in real–world projects. You ll know enough to build high–quality software that can be shared with the rest of the Rust community or even used in production.
