Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Rust

By: Claus Matzinger

Overview of this book

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. The book begins with an introduction to Rust data structures and algorithms, while also covering essential language constructs. You will learn how to store data using linked lists, arrays, stacks, and queues. You will also learn how to implement sorting and searching algorithms. You will learn how to attain high performance by implementing algorithms to string data types and implement hash structures in algorithm design. The book will examine algorithm analysis, including Brute Force algorithms, Greedy algorithms, Divide and Conquer algorithms, Dynamic Programming, and Backtracking. By the end of the book, you will have learned how to build components that are easy to understand, debug, and use in different applications.

What does cargo do?

Read and write access to repositories, run tests, dependency management (download, update, and managing the dependency tree), executing the build process, and providing a central interface for additional tooling.

Does cargo provide linting support?

cargo itself doesn't, but there are additional tools, such as clippy (, that work seamlessly with cargo.

In which cases is the Cargo.lock file important to publish?

For libraries. The file is used by cargo to determine the exact versions of the dependency tree. As a consequence, there should not be any version issues caused by unintentionally updated dependencies.

What are the requirements to publish to

Passing tests, no uncommitted files in the repository, a valid account, and an available spot on

What is Wasm and why should you care?
