The Rust programming language

Rust logoRust is a new open-source systems programming language created by Mozilla and a community of volunteers, designed to help developers create fast, secure applications which take full advantage of the powerful features of modern multi-core processors. It prevents segmentation faults and guarantees thread safety, all with an easy-to-learn syntax.

In addition, Rust offers zero-cost abstractions, move semantics, guaranteed memory safety, threads with no data races, trait-based generics, pattern matching, type inference, and efficient C bindings, with a minimum runtime size.

To learn more about Rust, you can:

  • Watch the videos below for a closer look at the power and benefits Rust provides.
  • Read the book The Rust Programming Language online.
  • Download the Rust compiler, check out examples, and learn everything you could possibly wish to know at the Rust official web site.
