I installed Rust! What's next?

Geek Nodding

Great job! Let's verify the installation by checking the Rust version on your computer.

rustc --version


rustc x.y.z
Gal Amazed

It shows the Rust version! It worked!

Geek Smiling

Awesome! Now we can start coding in Rust.

Step 3: Creating a New Rust Project

Gal Excited

How do I create my first Rust project?

Geek Encouraging

Let's use "cargo," Rust's package manager, to create a new project.

cargo new my_first_rust_project
cd my_first_rust_project

Step 4: Writing a Simple Rust Program

Gal Determined

Now, let's write some Rust code!

Geek Happy

Open the "src/" file in your favorite code editor and replace its contents with the following code:

fn main() {
    println!("Hello, world!");

Step 5: Running the Rust Program

Gal Wondering

How do I run my Rust program?

Geek Enthusiastic

You can use "cargo" to build and run the program. Just type the following command in the terminal:

cargo run


Hello, world!
Gal Surprised

It worked! I wrote my first Rust program!

Geek Proud

Congratulations! You're officially a Rust programmer now!


You’ve successfully installed Rust, created your first Rust project, and written and run a simple Rust program. Keep up the great work, and enjoy your Rust learning journey! 😃
