Learn to Build Rust Programs, Test Applications and Create Your Own Cargo Packages with latest Rust 1.77

“Rust In Practice, Second Edition” is an updated book that builds on the previous edition’s excellent foundation and is intended to help readers progress from novice to proficient Rust developers. This new edition comes with Rust 1.77 version that goes deeper into Rust’s core and advanced capabilities, making it suitable for learners at all levels.

Beginning with a basic introduction to Rust syntax and semantics, the Second Edition provides a clearer and more detailed explanation of Rust’s distinctive ownership model and type system. Readers will thoroughly explore control flow, error management, and Rust’s main data types, laying a solid foundation for more advanced topics. The book includes additional chapters on smart pointers, sophisticated error handling techniques, and the complexities of concurrency and parallelism, which address real-world programming issues. The book covers how to incorporate asynchronous programming features into projects, how to utilize and maintain Cargo, and a more in-depth look at Rust’s standard library and the external crates ecosystem.

“Rust In Practice, Second Edition” is intended to serve as both a learning tool and a reference for developing high-performance applications. It is packed with professional advice, clear explanations, and practical examples. This book will not only teach you Rust programming, but it will also help you design software that is strong, simple, efficient, and easily maintainable.
