Rust Fundamentals

Rust has recently gained significant popularity. It has been achieving top rankings in the _Most Loved Language_-category of the Stack Overflow developer survey for many years in a row. The reasons for Rust's success are manifold. The language is statically typed but with zero-cost abstractions, it eliminates entire classes of bugs because of its memory safeness, it generates blazingly fast code, you can build a wide variety of application types ranging from embedded systems for IoT devices to RESTful web APIs in the cloud, etc.

This workshop has been designed for developers who want to start working with Rust professionally and already have a solid background in programming from other C-like languages like Java, C++, C#, or JavaScript/TypeScript. It is not specialized in a specific field of use, but should rather equip attendees with the fundamental knowledge to successfully get started with Rust.
