Getting started with CLI programs in Rust

17th January 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from Linuxing in London- January

Rust is generally seen as an alternative to C and C++. But it is also gaining popularity for writing simple CLI programs, as a little stricter, faster and more easily distributable alternative to Python and Ruby. This is not only because CLI programming is in itself approachable, but also because there's ample convenient tooling around.

This talk will guide through writing your first CLI program: from getting set up over the basics of the language to parsing command line arguments to doing some useful work on common formats.
