The fastest way to learn Rust

Rust is not the easiest language to learn. Its syntax is dense. Its compiler harsh. There are many new concepts to grasps before writing your first program. It will take you weeks or months to understand the basics.

This course is designed to speed up the process.

After only two days, you'll know enough to write useful programs, use libraries, browse the docs and code in Rust effectively.

What you'll learn
  • Avoid the common pitfalls of learning Rust
  • Learn to use the zero-cost abstractions of Rust
  • Write thread-safe code without even trying
  • Forget about null references and segfaults
  • Create fast and maintainable code
  • Write idiomatic Rust code
  • Learn when to use Rust and when not to

Course Content

The course is given live and online, over two days, four hours each day. There will be an exercise at the end of each module. At all time during the course, you will be able to ask questions and get help. Here are the modules covered during the course.

The Teacher — Marc-André Cournoyer

For the past eight years, I've been teaching several online courses that helped thousands of developers. I'm deeply passionate about programming languages, their syntaxes, their internals and optimizations. I created a few of my own, and even wrote a popular book about it.

My goal with this course is to help you discover the joy of working with Rust!

Awesome! You make it seem so simple and interesting!
