This is my presentation on rust, the programming language, that I have done at the Norwegian Food and Safety Administration (Mattilsynet), while I worked there as a (devops) consultant. It goes over the very basics of rust, the major features, the type system, talks about some unique concepts not found elsewhere, and shows some examples on how you would model some very simple things.
I tried to get into rust 3 times now. Every time I gave up after about ~20 hours (combined), for various reasons. A week ago I gave it another shot, and I think I finally managed to have a breakthrough. Here is a list of things that I wish somebody has taught me before starting.
