Hey!

During my internship, I began following the guide by Steve Donovan: A Gentle Introduction to Rust

It will talk about rust, but also muscle memory, and it covers parsing with nom - something that we also use in Suricata :slight_smile:

I think The book is still my go-to for any issue given that Rust is so very well documented. It also has examples. You won’t need all of it, learn the basics, make a contribution and then learn as and when new concepts show up.
There are also:

Thank you so much Juliana.

Thank you so much Shivani

In my opinion, you have a great point there, Shivani, when you talk about learning as new concepts show up! I ended up doing something similar, and it not only feels more organic, but it tends to consolidate better, as I’m learning and applying
