  • Writing a new programming language. Part II: Variables and expressions
    3 projects | dev.to | 10 Aug 2022
    We are going to implement our language using rust, so I'll be following the standard rust project setup. If you are new to rust, please refer to the rust book which is a great resource to learn it.
  • Large project uses Rust backend. My backend developer left. How hard is it for me to learn Rust and take over for him.

    After The Book, my advice is to read Learning Rust With Entirely Too Many Linked Lists, which helps to solidify your understanding of what Rust's rules mean for writing data structures, rather than using ready-made ones off crates.io.

    If you haven't heard about it, reading (and implementing the projects in!) The Book is considered the canonical way to start. After that, jumping straight in may or may not work, depending on how complex the codebase is.

    It took me some months to realy understand the content. Also Rust has a very good documentation see: https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/

    I would second the other recommendations on this post to start with the official book (https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/). I would say reading the first ~15 chapters (+doing the exercises) would give you a good baseline from which you should be a position to start experimenting independently without constantly getting stuck (you'll still get stuck, but having read this far into the book you'll probably have a decent idea of what it is that you need to lookup to get yourself unstuck). I'd budget 2-3 days if you're quick, maybe a week if you're slower.
  • Building Redis Server in Rust: Part 1
    1 project | dev.to | 7 Aug 2022
    In this blog post, we will be making a Redis server in Rust Programming Language. If you are new to rust and looking to learn the language this is a good starting point. In this post, no prior knowledge of the language is assumed. However, if you have read the rust book or some starter tutorial it would be great. If you are someone who has done some basic rust, then this is perfect to dive deeper by building a full scale software program.
  • Writing a new programming language. Part I: a bit of boring theory
    3 projects | dev.to | 6 Aug 2022
    I would be writing the language in Rust, so knowledge of the syntax and Rust skills would help. Rust book is a good resource to learn.
  • What are your top 3-5 programming languages and why?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/bioinformatics | 4 Aug 2022
    I would start with the book and then rust-bio library. Rust is a pretty low level language compared to R/Python. It’s an especially good fit for writing efficient tools that make use of the kinds of algorithms / data structures that are implemented in rust-bio.
  • Resources for learning rust aimed at a beginner programmer?
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/learnrust | 4 Aug 2022
    First, start with the Rust Book and then complete the rustling exercises.
