This repository has the source code for Comprehensive Rust 🦀, a multi-day Rust
course developed by the Android team. The course covers all aspects of Rust,
from basic syntax to generics and error handling. It also includes deep dives on
Android, bare-metal, and concurrency.

Read the course at https://google.github.io/comprehensive-rust/.

Course Format and Target Audience

The course is used internally at Google when teaching Rust to experienced
software engineers. They typically have a background in C++ or Java.

The course is taught in a classroom setting and we hope it will be useful for
others who want to teach Rust to their team. The course will be less useful for
self-study since you miss out on the discussions happening in the classroom. You
don’t see the questions and answers and you don’t see the compiler errors we
trigger when going through the code samples. We hope to improve on this via
speaker notes and by
publishing videos.

Building

The course is built using a few tools:

Install these tools with:

$ cargo install mdbook
$ cargo install mdbook-svgbob
$ cargo install mdbook-i18n-helpers
$ cargo install --path mdbook-exerciser

Then run

to test all included Rust snippets. Run

to start a web server with the course. You’ll find the content on
http://localhost:3000. You can use mdbook build to create a static version
of the course in the book/ directory. Note that you have to separately build
and zip exercises and add them to book/html.
