Rust

Day 1: Setting Up the Environment

Remember all those awesome Rust features we've been talking about? Well, before we dive deeper, it's time to set up your very own Rust coding workspace. There are a few ways to do this, each with its own advantages. Let's have a look at them 🦀

Rust Playground

The easiest way to dip your toes into Rust is using the Rust Playground. It's a fantastic online sandbox built by the Rust community for experimenting with the language. Think of it as your Rust test kitchen – you can write code snippets right in your browser without any setup. This makes it perfect for trying things out, following examples, or just getting a feel for how Rust works. It even has neat features like sharing your code snippets!

However, if you're building anything serious (multiple files, custom scripts, etc.), you'll eventually need a more powerful setup. But don't worry, the Playground is a perfect starting point, especially for the examples we'll cover in this article series. For more information, visit the Rust Playground help page.
