If this short video series inspired you to try out Rust for yourself, then how can you get started learning the language?

This article is Part 7 in a 7-Part Series.

The prior videos in this series motivated why you might choose Rust for your next systems project, and how to choose when it’s the right choice. If it seems that it might be the right choice for you, then the next step is to figure out how to actually learn the programming language.

In this video:

  • I give quick instructions of how to get a Rust development environment on your machine.
  • You see a few commands that can get you to your first “hello world” program.
  • I then point to a number of different ways to learn, each targetted for a different learning style:
    • Textbook
    • Courses
    • Sample code
    • Simple programming challenges

That concludes this brief executive overview of Rust. Are you planning to use Rust for your next systems project?
