Rust Programming Language
Rust is blazingly fast and memory-efficient: with no runtime or
garbage collector, it can power performance-critical services, run on
embedded devices, and easily integrate with other languages.
Rust’s rich type system and ownership model guarantee memory-safety
and thread-safety — enabling you to eliminate many classes of
bugs at compile-time.
Rust has great documentation, a friendly compiler with useful error
messages, and top-notch tooling — an integrated package manager
and build tool, smart multi-editor support with auto-completion and
type inspections, an auto-formatter, and more.
In 2018, the Rust community decided to improve programming experience
for a few distinct domains (see the 2018
roadmap). For these, you can find many high-quality crates and some
awesome guides on how to get started.
Whip up a CLI tool quickly with Rust’s robust ecosystem.
Rust helps you maintain your app with confidence and distribute it with ease.
Publish to npm, bundle with webpack, and you’re off to the races.
Writing Web Apps
Predictable performance. Tiny resource footprint. Rock-solid reliability.
Rust is great for network services.
Working On Servers
Targeting low-resource devices?
Need low-level control without giving up high-level conveniences?
Rust has you covered.
Starting With Embedded
Hundreds of companies around the world are using Rust in production
today for fast, low-resource, cross-platform solutions. Software you know
and love, like Firefox,
uses Rust. From startups to large
corporations, from embedded devices to scalable web services, Rust is a great fit.
My biggest compliment to Rust is that it’s boring, and this is an amazing compliment.

All the documentation, the tooling, the community is great – you have all the tools to succeed in writing Rust code.
– Antonio Verardi, Infrastructure Engineer
We love documentation! Take a look at the books available online, as well as key blog posts and user guides.
