I found the best Rust tutorial for C/C++ people


#1

I’m a long time C and C++ programmer, like 25 years long (and only dabbled with Python/Java.) This Rust tutorial was listed in “This Week in Rust” and I have found it to be the best I’ve seen so far.

It’s been extremely helpful to me that it often draws contrasts as it goes with other languages. In fairness, there are some missing comparisons (such as talking about Box without explaining that it’s a heap allocator roughly equivalent to using unique_ptr/make_unique in C++) but for the most part this tutorial does a great job.
