Do you write code for free and open source projects? Would you like to learn the basics of the Rust programming language? I’m offering to teach the basics of Rust to free and open source software programmers, for free.

After the course, you will be able to:

  • understand what kind of language Rust is
  • make informed decisions about using Rust in a project
  • read code written in Rust
  • write simple command line programs in Rust
  • understand memory management in Rust
  • study Rust on your own

To be clear: this course will not make you an expert in Rust. The goal is to get you started. To become an expert takes a long time and much effort.

For more information, including on when it happens and how to sign up, see my Rust training for FOSS programmers page.

(Disclaimer: I’m doing this partly ad advertising for my paid training: if you’d like your employer to pay me to run the course for their staff, point them at my training courses page.)
