New Rustacean – learning the Rust programming language

Strings &strs and Vecs and slices (and Unicode) – oh, my!


This episode, I take a deep dive on strings in Rust, looking at the differences between String and &str, discussing Unicode a bit, and then expanding the discussion to think about how these types relate to the types they’re built on (like Vec).
