About this book
Step into the world of asynchronous programming with confidence by conquering the challenges of unclear concepts with this hands-on guide. Using functional examples, this book simplifies the trickiest concepts, exploring goroutines, fibers, futures, and callbacks to help you navigate the vast Rust async ecosystem with ease. You’ll start by building a solid foundation in asynchronous programming and explore diverse strategies for modeling program flow. The book then guides you through concepts like epoll, coroutines, green threads, and callbacks using practical examples. The final section focuses on Rust, examining futures, generators, and the reactor-executor pattern. You’ll apply your knowledge to create your own runtime, solidifying expertise in this dynamic domain. Throughout the book, you’ll not only gain proficiency in Rust's async features but also see how Rust models asynchronous program flow. By the end of the book, you'll possess the knowledge and practical skills needed to actively contribute to the Rust async ecosystem.

Part 1:Asynchronous Programming Fundamentals

In this part, you’ll receive a thorough introduction to concurrency and asynchronous programming. We’ll also explore various techniques that programming languages employ to model asynchrony, examining the most popular ones and covering some of the pros and cons associated with each. Finally, we’ll explain the concept of OS-backed event queues, such as epoll, kqueue, and IOCP, detailing how system calls are used to interact with the operating system and addressing the challenges encountered in creating cross-platform abstractions like mio. This section comprises the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1, Concurrency and Asynchronous Programming: A Detailed Overview
  • Chapter 2, How Programming Languages Model Asynchronous Program Flow
  • Chapter 3, Understanding OS-Backed Event Queues, System Calls and Cross Platform Abstractions
