Implementing the trie data structure in Rust

In this fun tutorial, Tim McNamara, the author of Rust in Action, demonstrates how to implement a trie data structure in Rust. If you’re looking to improve your Rust skills and learn more about data structures, this video is a must-watch! In this video, you’ll learn:
  • What a trie is and why it’s a valuable data structure for tasks such as search optimization and word suggestion
  • A naive implementation of a trie using HashMap from Rust’s standard library, providing a solid foundation for understanding the core concepts
  • A more sophisticated implementation utilizing a bespoke hash function with the help of the fxhash crate, enhancing performance and efficiency
Join Tim as he takes you on a journey through the fascinating world of data structures in Rust, filled with live-coding examples and in-depth explanations.
