Making Rust more Accessible through Game Development


It’s not a surprise that video games inspire many young minds to learn about programming. Game programmers are connecting fans to their work more than ever through social media. Furthermore, the top-selling game in the world, Minecraft, connects players to programming by literally calling a version of their game “Minecraft: Java Edition”. So how can we introduce new and eager programmers to Rust through game development? My presentation will go over how we can work to lower barriers to game development and more effectively bring people into the Rust community.
