Rust is a fast, memory-safe, reliable, functional, general-purpose, low-level systems programming language, and it is used by many companies for various functions. As of December 2022, Rust is also used in development for Linux terminals along with C. Rust has been ranked as the most loved language to code in on a stack overflow survey for three consecutive years. Tech giants like Microsoft, Google, and Amazon have recognized and are actively supporting Rust's potential. As a result, Rust is increasingly finding its way into real-world applications and products.


Workshop Outline: Attendees will first be explained about basic computing things that are necessary to move ahead, and then there’ll be a sort of code along for the attendees as all the different topics will be explained.


Prerequisites for attendees: Attendees must have Rust ( Installed on their laptops and are encouraged to code along. Attendees need to know any 1 Programming Language and basic computing concepts to relate to how Rust does those things. Everything will be taught from scratch.
