Book Description

If you are building concurrent application, server-side programs, or high performance applications, you will benefit from this language. This book comes with a lot of application-specific recipes, which will help you get kick-started with developing real-world high performance applications with the Rust programming language and integrate rust units into your existing applications. In this book, you will find 75-80 practical recipes written in Rust that will allow you to use the code samples right away in your existing applications.

This book will help you understand the core concepts of the Rust language, enabling you to develop efficient and high performance applications by incorporating features such as zero cost abstraction and better memory management. We later dive deep into the existing problems in web development and deliver solutions to build high performance and safer production-level web applications and services using Rust.

Further on, you will learn how to create HTTP servers and web sockets, building a strong foundational knowledge in server-side programming. Toward the end of the book, we’ll dive into advanced-level concepts such as string handling, macros, concurrency, and parallelism.
