Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Rust

This is the code repository for Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Rust, published by Packt.

Learn programming techniques to build effective, maintainable, and readable code in Rust 2018

What is this book about?

Rust has come a long way and is now utilized in several contexts. Its key strengths are its software infrastructure and resource-constrained applications, including desktop applications, servers, and performance-critical applications, not forgetting its importance in systems' programming. This book will be your guide as it takes you through implementing classic data structures and algorithms in Rust, helping you to get up and running as a confident Rust programmer.

This book covers the following exciting features: Design and implement complex data structures in Rust Analyze, implement, and improve searching and sorting algorithms in Rust Create and use well-tested and reusable components with Rust Understand the basics of multithreaded programming and advanced algorithm design Become familiar with application profiling based on benchmarking and testing Explore the borrowing complexity of implementing algorithms

Instructions and Navigations

All of the code is organized into folders. For example, Chapter02.

The code will look like the following:

fn my_function() {
    let x = 10;
    do_something(x); // ownership is moved here
    let y = x; // x is now invalid!

Following is what you need for this book: This book is for developers seeking to use Rust solutions in a practical/professional setting; who wants to learn essential Data Structures and Algorithms in Rust. It is for developers with basic Rust language knowledge, some experience in other programming languages is required.

With the following software and hardware list you can run all code files present in the book (Chapter 1-12).
