Rust is a young programming language developed by Mozilla with the open source community support. According to a survey of StackOverflow, in 2016 was the most loved among developers language! The goal of Rust is to combine control and performances, that is, operate at low level with high-level constructs. The actual applications vary from operating system to web development. Rust natively includes tools for Agile development, such as dependency management, testing and much more. The gap with other popular languages is filling up quickly thanks to the community, very active and fantastic :)
In this introductory presentation we will discuss the characteristics that make Rust unique, including the concepts of Ownership, Borrowing, and Lifetimes.
These slide has be presented for a talk in BIC Lazio Casilina, that has been also the first meetup of Rust Rome!
