Asynchronous Programming in Rust (Packt)
Monday, 19 February 2024

This book is for programmers who want to enhance their understanding of asynchronous programming, especially those experienced in VM'ed or interpreted languages like C#, Java, Python, JavaScript, and Go.  Using functional examples, Carl Fredrik Samson simplifies the concepts, exploring goroutines, fibers, futures, and callbacks.

<ASIN:1805128132 >

Samson starts with the foundations of asynchronous programming and explores diverse strategies for modeling program flow. The book then considers language implementations, explaining concepts like epoll, stackfull coroutines, green threads, and callbacks using practical examples. The final section focuses on Rust, examining futures, generators, and the reactor-executor pattern.
