Getting Start with Rust

Rust is a system language like C C++ and GO. It has included memory management. C++ requires DIY.

Task: Create a Rust project

$ cargo init

Definition: Cargo is the package manager for Rust

Task: run the main program in Rust. Source file has main function

$ cargo run

Main function is always the first function that will be executed when running rust. If one changes function to a different name will get error.

Task: Hello World with Rust. 

pub fn hello(){

println!("Hello World!");


Task: import hello module. Mod is the keyword for module. 

mod hello;

fn main(){



Task: use :: syntax to call function in a module


Task : view startup scripts Scroll down to the bottom of package.json


"start": "nodemon app.js",

"serve": "node",


Task: serialize, deserialize data between code and byte code. Encode and decode.

Super app for everything in crypto. Solana mobile. Crypto can track an address interact with u, know the entire history."

Speaker, currently interaction is mostly on desktop, need the wechat moment for crypto - super app),
