is a new, practical, community-developed systems programming language that
"runs blazingly fast, prevents almost all crashes, and eliminates data
races." Rust derives from a rich history of languages to create a
In this course, we will cover what makes Rust so unique and apply it to practical systems programming problems. Topics covered will include traits and generics; memory safety (move semantics, borrowing, and lifetimes); Rust’s rich macro system; closures; and concurrency. Evaluation is based on regular homework assignments as well as a final project and class participation.
