Practical Rust 1.x Cookbook, Second Edition

100+ Solutions for beginners to practice rust programming across CI/CD, kubernetes, networking, code performance and microservices

About the Book

If you want to learn how to program in Rust and create strong, reliable apps with the most recent version Rust 1.68, then you need the "Practical Rust 1.x Cookbook (Second Edition)"—a book full of real-world solutions. An extensive collection of practical recipes covering a wide range of topics, this edition expands upon the first and guarantees that you will be well-versed in the complexities of Rust.

You will learn the fundamentals of programming, how to set up a development environment, and the syntax of Rust in the first few chapters. Data structures, pattern matching, error handling, and concurrency are all covered in the recipes, which will set you up for success with more complex topics.As you go through the book, you'll learn how to write efficient and secure code by managing memory, using Rust's ownership model, and borrowing rules. You will gain an understanding of how to make use of robust Rust features such as traits, generics, and lifetimes to build code that is both flexible and reusable. The testing and debugging chapters provide the necessary tools and techniques to guarantee that your applications are dependable and free of bugs.

Using profiling tools like valgrind and perf, the cookbook teaches you how to find and fix performance bottlenecks, which is a major focus of performance optimization. By learning about SIMD instructions, compiler optimization flags, and parallel processing with libraries like rayon, you can greatly improve the efficiency of your code. In the more advanced chapters, you will learn how to use static and dynamic analysis, fuzz testing, and external high-performance libraries to make your applications even better. In no time at all, you will be able to build robust, high-performance Rust applications by following these potent recipes and becoming an expert Rust programmer.

Key Learnings

  • Learn the ins and outs of Rust's ownership model to avoid data races and make sure memory is safe.
  • Develop your skills in pattern matching and advanced error handling to create code that is both strong and easy to maintain.
  • Use the robust primitives and rayon library in Rust to implement parallelism and concurrency.
  • Use the perf, valgrind, and SIMD instructions to optimize performance for efficient execution.
  • Carry out thorough fuzz testing and static analysis with clippy and cargo-fuzz.
  • Enable efficient memory management by studying high-performance libraries such as hashbrown and jemalloc.
  • With diesel and sqlx, you can manage databases and make queries and integrations a breeze.
  • Optimize the deployment of Rust applications and establish CI/CD pipelines.
