Although I want you to come away from this book having learned something, and hopefully feeling inspired to write more exciting code, this book is also a learning experience for me.

I've never used Markdown before except for writing GitHub README's that only I'm going to read, so simply using Mdbook is super exciting! I think Markdown is cool because it's like HTML for lazy people (and I am very lazy).

Throughout the book, I will have many questions. I started teaching myself Rust around ~half a year ago, so perhaps I'm not really qualified to write this book. I'd never touched an atomic variable before I started this project (and I still technically haven't), so I really mean it when I say this is a learning experience for me. I'll try to document the answers to the questions I have so you can learn from them as well. There will also be a whole section of reflections, as this is also for a school project. You might enjoy that section more than the technical sections.

Before we get started, I want to clarify the structure of the book. There are three main "sections": Theory/Algorithm, Code, and Reflections. Feel free to bounce around if one section becomes too much.

And without further ado . . . cargo run!
