Join us in learning more about Rust, one of the fastest-growing programming languages, which continues to be ranked the most-loved language by its users. Its user base, aka “Rustaceans,” has tripled in just two years as more and more software products are being developed in Rust.


In this fast-paced overview with Danesh Forouhari we’ll talk about:

  • The history of Rust
  • Problems Rust solves
  • Comparing Rust to other programming languages
  • Benchmarking data (vs. C & Go)
  • The good, the bad, and the ugly of programming with Rust
  • Running some sample Rust code, if time permits



Danesh Forouhari, M.S.

A Senior Software Engineering Manager of Infrastructure at Khan Academy with more than 20 years of experience in the software development industry. He teaches Python for Programmers at UCSC Silicon Valley Education.
