Learning Rust - The Beginning

I started the Rust Programming Language book a couple of days ago, or at least started to get serious with it. The plan is to create the desktop app I’ve been wanting to create for a while now. After checking up into a lot of alternatives including Flutter Desktop and Electron I decided I wanted to try something new and challenging, so I choose Rust.

It is true that it would have been a lot easier for me to create it using Electron since I have a lot of experience with React but I’m at a point of my live where I need to challenge myself in order to stay in my feet. And what better than learning a high-level language that worries about pointers :sweat_smile:.

I expect a lot of re-reading, confusion, googling, and difficulty while embarking in this journey. It has been quite a few years since I’ve used anything other than javascript, python or flutter, needless to say that memory allocation is not a big concern in the practical applications of those.


Moti will be a desktop app where I can centralize some of the things I presently use for productivity and plan to use in the future. Some features include:

I will start a new devlog section for the development of this as soon as I am a bit further ahead in the Rust book and actually start the project itself.

Until next time, where I will probably be overwhelm by what I learn.
