Product Details


“You’ll learn dozens—probably hundreds—of things about how to improve your Rust programming by reading this book.”
—Tim McNamara, author of Rust in Action

“One of Rust’s weaknesses as a language is there’s a lot of beginner content and a lot of advanced content, but any intermediate content is just nonexistent or requires quite the struggle to learn. Jon Gjengset has done a wonderful job of distilling those next steps into an easy to read book.”
—Michael Gattozzi, Senior Software Engineer, Fastly

“For a long time, people have asked me what they should read after The Rust Programming Language. Rust for Rustaceans is that book. This book will teach you how to effectively *use* Rust, after you’ve understood the core syntax and semantics of the language itself. Rust has a rich number of tools for you to choose from, and Rust for Rustaceans will show them all off, and teach you how to properly take advantage of all the richness Rust has to offer.”
—Steve Klabnik, co-author of The Rust Programming Language

“Rust for Rustaceans is such a good book (for folks who already know rust)!”
—Ron Bowes, @iagox86
