Tech author Tim McNamara.

Tim McNamara is the author of Rust in Action, an introduction to Rust for programmers who have never used a systems programming language.

He discusses Rust's rich type system; ownership models; memory safety; thread safety; concurrency; UnSafe Rust; build tools; compilers; build times; running Rust with no OS; Rust 2021 edition; Rust's future; when to use Rust; how Rust compares to C, C++, and Go; and much more.
