I work for an aerospace company and many of our flight software requires memory/thread safe code. There’s been interest in Rust here and talk on adapting it. For about the past month and a half I’ve been coming in early and spending 30 minutes to an hour each day to learn it.
I’m a part time graduate student and full time software engineer at my company so my time is limited. Therefore, I’ve wanted to make sure I’m being as methodical as possible in the learning process of this language. Looking back on when you first started learning Rust, what would you do different or wish you would of understood more from the beginning when learning it?
Just a small background of where I’m coming from…
I’m a junior level engineer and have more exposure to C than C++. However, my roles at work have been completely encapsulated to C++ threaded applications (POSIX) for the last year. I can write my own Cmake/Makefiles and can do some Ruby/Python as far as scripting goes. My graduate work has been more C based programming in an embedded environment so far.
