After a heated up discussion with myself & my brain about which static typed langauge to learn,
I was thinking about learning
Rust for a long time but I was not sure which one to learn first,
I finally decided to learn Rust first because I think it is more suitable for my current skill level.
What do I mean by that? I mean that I am not a beginner in programming but I am not an expert either,
But I have a fair understanding of programming concepts & I have a good understanding of functional programming. I like tinkering with operating systems, processes, threads, etc.. Curious about how memory management work under the hood.
So I thought
Rust is a good fit for me, I am not sure if I am right or not but I will find out soon.
Let's start with the basics, I am going to learn Rust by following the official manual The Rust Programming Language.
Imma try to write a post for 3 chapter each time, so I can keep track of my progress and can share my experience.
PS: This is what motivated more to learn Rust xD;
In most situations, we’ll lead you to the correct version of any code that doesn’t compile.
Some Intresting things about Rust I found when I was pouring through the web
