Rust: What developers need to know about this programming language (free PDF)

There’s growing interest in the use of memory-safe Rust for systems programming to build major platforms and for good reason. Rust, a programming language created at Mozilla, is a relatively newer language, but it’s already known for its memory management capabilities and security.

Another language with cross-platform support, Rust can be used to develop mobile applications that will run on Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, Linux, and an assortment of Unix flavors. Sharing similarities with C and C++, Rust has the flexibility to function as a development tool for designing native apps or web-based ones, yet the power and integrity to run as operating systems, browser components, and game or simulation engines.
