Who Should Read This Book

This book assumes that you have some prior programming experience. It gently introduces you to Rust and game development concepts. If you’ve written anything more complicated than a “Hello, World” program in another programming language, you should feel comfortable working through this book’s examples.

This book is ideal for anyone who wants to give Rust a try—it does not assume that you know the Rust language. It’s also well suited for Rust developers who want to try their hand at game development. Alongside an introductory programming tutorial, it could also be helpful to new developers.

What’s Not in This Book

This book emphasizes learning theory by following practical examples and explaining the theory behind the technique you learned. This book isn’t an in-depth guide to every facet of the Rust language; instead, this book guides you to sources for this information when it introduces a concept.

Likely, this book doesn’t describe the game idea you’ve always wanted to make. That’s OK. This book teaches concepts that are useful whether you want to make the next great online board game or a shooter. These concepts are readily transferable to other engines, including Unity, Godot, Unreal, and Amethyst. By the end of the book, you’ll be much better equipped to start work on the game you’ve always wanted to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to digest brain candy that will let you build worlds.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 28, 2021
Herbert has done a great job of using video-games to convey Rust practices.

I do not have a degree in CS.

I come from a JavaScript back ground.

This book has been easy to digest. Does a great job at preparing you for further chapters as you read. It has been a great way to spend the time learning a language that has only made my work skill-set more robust.
