I am a French-Swedish CS student. Rust has been recommended to me by people I have the utmost respect for, so I was tempted to try it for a long time.
I just started to learn last week with a crash course by Nathan Stocks. I loved the language tremendously and many topics I struggled with clicked directly. I bought The Book, another book (Rust in Action), and taking notes of all the bugs I created to left no stone unturned (...and there are many stones!)
The crash course instructor was very kind and said several time that the Rust community is lovely and awesome, so here I am , hoping you'll tolerate my many mistakes along the way!
