A series focusing on concepts and the basics of programming

In this episode BlacKernel is back! (Although a lot more loopy than I remember being while recording)

And teaching you how to make functions, for loops, and match statements in Rust.

Points covered in this episode:

  • isize and usize number types in rust
  • fn (function) declarations with arguments and return types
  • match statements both bare and part of variable assignment
  • for _ in 1..x loops. That is for loops over an iterator variable across a range of integers.
