Rust is one of the most loved programming languages among developers. It is rapidly being adopted as the industry moves towards memory-safety systems programming languages. If you want to switch from C/C++ to Rust, this book is for you.
“Rust for C++ Programmers” is the perfect guide to help you master the Rust programming language. Beginning with its evolution and comparison to C/C++, the book will help you learn how to install and use the powerful Cargo package manager. The book then covers key topics such as bindings and mutability, ownership, conditionals, loops, functions, structs and enums, and more. The book also explains how to handle errors in Rust. Furthermore, the book explores advanced topics such as smart pointers, concurrency, and even building a desktop application using GTK.
By the end of the book, you will be able to build powerful and resilient apps with Rust.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Create concurrent programs in Rust using threads.
- Learn how to build a desktop app using GTK.
- Understand how and when (not) to use Unsafe Rust.
- Get familiar with the common error handling patterns in Rust.
- Learn how to build a Desktop app using Tauri.

Mustafif Khan is a Canadian student majoring in Financial Mathematics and minoring in Computer Science. Some of his hobbies are programming, gaming, and writing. He has been writing his books since he was a kid, with a few self-published poetry books in his catalog. His interest in programming began with his wish to write his own website. Soon after, Khan became interested in systems programming with his change to using Linux distributions. He has been programming Rust for the last three years and has learned a lot from books, documentation, and building projects, such as TexCreate (a LaTeX project creator) and TexCore (a library to write LaTeX using Rust types). Before Khan found Rust, he was writing projects in C++ and Golang, although after using Rust, he has not been able to go back except for C.
