Desert Rustaceans Join us on Slack

Desert Rustaceans is a local Meetup hosted by @elbow-jason and @jacobrosenthal. We meet monthly to discuss Rust, as well as our weekly online/offline study groups. Come learn Rust with us!

This repo serves as a place for us to collect links and other notes from our meetings.


The Rust book which has you playing with code right along the documentation all in the browser.

Rust by example which goes further in depth with exercises again right in your browser.

The New Rustaceans Podcast to keep your mind in the game even while you're out and about.

Of course where you get you some crates.
