Introduction to Rust
In our Introductory Workshops, you will learn the basic skills to read and write Rust code competently on your own. Besides the basic syntax, you will learn about Rust’s type system, the ownership model, and concurrent programming. You will also learn about the daily coding workflow, using the tooling supplied around the language.
