I just started learning rustlang.
I am super new to the language (and compiled languages in general). Do any of you guys have some tips or things I should check out?4
I've been eyeing Rust for quite a while and it definitely caught my curiosity, specially after the SO survey. Now I want to learn Rust but I normally need to work on a project in order to actually learn and keep myself motivated, yet I have no idea what to start, any ideas?15
Can someone please explain why every forum and tech news source talks about Rust? New database — in Rust. New algorithm — in Rust. New OS — in Rust. I thought everyone was hyping about python these days...11
So, after day 3 of Rust programming I have an observation to make:
Rust package management (and conflicts that arise) is not very good.
To the rusters out there, am I wrong? Is there something to make it better?19
Started working on a per project in Rust (first time using Rust) .. a scripting language.
Rust is great, so fast, compiles in 0.5-1.2seconds on my $200 laptop as well! Pretty rare for safety, speed, AND compile speed to exist in one beautiful language.
Also my scripting language is the opposite of beautiful. Oh God.3
My name's Addison! I work as a .NET/T-SQL dev by day, moonlighting as a rustacean. I'm a big fan of Arch Linux and i3wm.5
One day every 2 week, we got to spend the Friday just learning and trying stuff. No working on projects unless it's critical.
On these days, I feel like I learn much more than in the rest of the weeks.
Today I built (normally Python developer) a web service using Rust.
I'm sorry but if you think a language, OS, or pretty much anything else sucks just because it's hard to learn/operate then you're just lazy and closed minded. Look up "rustlang rant" on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.‘)3
Being fairly new to the software game I’ve yet to tried my fair share of languages, both at work at a professional level and small to medium sized projects at home. I’m now starting to see patterns and different features in languages, and I must say that Rust is a language that blew me away totally.
I read the online book and then I wrote a few small programs. It feels super modern with all the cool features and it’s so fast. The threshold can be high, depending on your background.
I’m no pro using the language at all, but I enjoy it so much. I urge you to try Rust for your next project. The community around the language is also very interesting and welcoming.
What are your experiences with Rust?3
A mixture of soundcloud and facebook to build a better social network only for music lovers. Trying to do this in rust to teach myself the language. And of course I'm hoping to finish it!
So tokio-rs had me really confused on how to properly use split streams and sinks to read and write io, so I made a simplified interface to save others (and myself) some trouble.
Check it out, it's called tokio-simplified, and it's on https://crates.io/crates/...
I like it, you can place as many callbacks as you want to respond to each frame from the stream, and use as many mpsc::senders as you like to write to the sink.
And as a bonus, you can have a filter callback called before any other, to choose whether or not a frame should make it to the others, and bonus feature: that callback is 0 cost against just passing it as a for_each on your stream.
Hope it helps some of you on your journeys to Rust
Just finished what I consider a "good enough" version of a .gitignore generator in Rust (yeah yeah another one I know).
What a great feeling, even though struggled a lot and I'm completely frustrated that I implemented some things wrong. I have a working version (let's say alpha version) that actually works.
Unfortunately I discovered that there are better ways to implement my "match" expressions (when I was already done...typical shit) and String vs str is still a difficult concept to implement, BUT it is a great experience to finally have something open source that I can say that I made!
I honestly think everyone should have such a side project! I Should've done this earlier! 😑

I’ve made a list of things I want to learn. Languages, frameworks, etc and i don’t really have too many things on the list that way I can learn them well.
I’ve been struggling with this choice because I’m honestly not sure whether or not I should consider Rust to be on the list.
I like the modern features it contains, and I don’t mind the syntax.
I don’t like it’s way of memory management, I’ve heard it’s performance can be very lacking, and I’ve heard a lot of negative things about the compiler and the efficiency of the language (although I feel like efficiency comes down to the person and how the code is written)
So please redpill me on Rust and try to convince me to add it to my list because it’s close.2
Too early in the year for goals so far, but I'll give it a shot. Here's what I'm gunning for in the short-term:
Week 85 - 2018 Dev/Coding Goals:
- Continue educating myself in the Rust programming language (I feel like I dropped the ball there last year, Rust is easy to get programmer's block because it's syntax isn't always clear what should be done with it and/or why, the references. Ugghh fml).
- Get feature parity of PYXReloaded with it's predecessor, and get most of the planned features implemented. Friends of mine really want this and like screencaps I've sent already. It's a project I've been working on with @Gianlu for the past few days.
Week 85 - 2018 General/Personal Goals:
- Get over my motivational issues.
- Get over my depression/loneliness
- Get over my social anxiety.
I'm trying to better myself, both in coding and personal life. I fucking love this community. I used to use Reddit to find posts exactly like the ones here, but this is wayyy better and has everything all in one place.
Have a prosperous 2018, guys. Remember not to look at what you want to get done in just 365 days. You need to see the big picture.
New Year Resolutions:
1. Build a perception system for self driving cars as a project.
2. Learn Rust
Any other suggestions?
