Read and download free eBook intituled Why Rust? Trustworthy, Concurrent Systems Programming in format created by Jim Blandy.
While systems programming languages have greatly evolved since the introduction of C more than 40 years ago, our capacity for dumb mistakes with enormous consequences has remained unchanged, with vivid examples regularly in the news. This O’Reilly report examines Rust, a new systems programming language that combines safety and security with performance on a par with C and C++.
This book explains how Rust achieves this combination via a sophisticated and flexible type system, working together with a novel “borrow checker.” Rust promises:
With this book, you’ll learn how to put Rust’s safety, performance, and trustworthy concurrency to use, and you’ll understand how the type system and borrow checker affect the way you write your code.
