  • If I have learned something here is that programming sucks but it's also cool when it works
    Otherwise, the rustlings are a good (and official) way to exercise and understand the basic concepts by practice. Doing them while using the book is a better experience for most imho. (checking out rust by example as a reference too is pretty good). It doesn't really go into traits/lifetimes though, but it does touch on some of the peculiarities (like the enum system, box/rc etc).

    Old good Rustlings. Also available as Intellij IDEA Edu course
  • It's been 20 days since I started learning rust as my first language. Terrible experience. Should I move forward? | 2021-10-04

    The Rust 2019 survey results showed that Rust users vary in the amount of time they start feeling productive in the language. "About 37% of Rust users felt productive in Rust in less than a month of use" and "70% felt productive in their first year". Don't get discouraged and continue learning CS and continue reading the Rust book, I think it is worth learning Rust because of the confidence it gives you in the correctness of your code and because cargo is a great dependency manager. For exercises you can check out But do consider it might take more time to "feel productive" in Rust than in languages like Go or Python which have a more "batteries are included" approach and simpler syntax. It took me around 3 months of reading the Rust book and playing around in the Rust Playground to get comfortable with the basics enough to understand and recode a simple example snake game using ggez which used all the simple concepts I had learned by reading the first 10 Chapters of the Rust book.

    In the first file of rustlings we get an error that simply means, x does not exist and that's because we haven't defined the variable.

  • Struggling with Hands-on Rust / Rust itself.
    If this is your intro to Rust I would suggest going through the Rust book, and maybe Rustlings and Rust by example. You can access these through the terminal as well with the command "rustup doc". They might help you understand rust a bit more, and then go through this as the next step instead.

    I started out by doing some of the Rustlings project, which teaches the basics. It's very nice to get started, In the beginning I was very confused about many of the concepts, but search for Pascal Precht Rustlings on YouTube. He has good solutions and explanations.
  • Could you recommend a Rust book that's phase faster than "The Rust Programming Language"? | 2021-09-04

    I would suggest and/or rustlings
  • I tried learning rust, and failed miserably... | 2021-08-21
    You might benefit from going through the rustlings exercises. Each exercise focuses on a single concept, so you get to apply what you learn in a piecemeal fashion.
