ferris the crab (unofficial rust mascot)

Russell Cousineau

I've been using Rust for almost five years. When I discovered it I asked, "Where have you been all my life?!" A memory-safe language with a lot of functional programming features and performance on par with C. Sound too good to be true? Check it out and see for yourself!

Some cool Rust projects:

  • Rust Warrior, a game I created for learning Rust (heavily inspired by Ruby Warrior)
  • I gave a talk about Rust Macros and this repository has links to the slides and some helpful resources for learning about and writing macros.
  • The Rust and Web Assembly book, including a fun guide for building Conway's Game of Life
    Here's my version, with some added features
  • Nu Shell is a really neat shell written in Rust.
  • Servo, Mozilla's Rust browser engine
  • Amethyst, a Rust game engine

I also like to study Japanese. こんにちは! I've been learning (self-taught) off-and-on for a few years now.

I have played a ridiculous amount of Rocket League.
My greatest achievement
