How is Rust compared with Golang when it comes to concurrency? How easy is it to create concurrent application? Does Rust has built in features like Channels(which golang has) for coordination?

How Haskell handles concurrency ? Haskell has definitely good libraries but how does it compare while developing REST/Microservice?
All math concepts are not required i guess but familiarity of  some topics are essential.
1)Linear Algebra
2)Basic Calculus/single/multivariate

Thanks all and author for answering!

Eager to read.

Algorithms are of great importance but everyday do we face these problems? Unless you are developing application or system in initial phase, we are busy mainly maintaining the application or giving support. So people tend to memorize algorithms or data structures for the sake of appearing for interviews!
Do you/your book recommend any hobby projects so that  we keep active interest in this field?

Hello Daniel.

Thanks for the great book. This book uses C language so i hope we can use Golang also .
Does book assumes any prerequisites ? like discrete math  etc ?

Google might give 73,482 results in 0.89 seconds.Going through each free portal and reading through License and Terms and conditions is painful job.

Is there any free portal application which we can use for intranet application?
to do:
1)Logging of user
2)User will enter data in some table
3)Data will be stored in database table.

I thought about this:
e^ix = cos(x) + i sin(x) and then ix = ln(cos(x) +i sin(x)) and then put x = PI,you get the above one.But without this plugging,formula doesn't seem obivious to me.One irrational number raised to the power of another irrational and sqrt(-1) is -1?
As per Gauss- "if this formula was not immediately obvious, the reader would never be a first-class mathematician".

So you want to do R&D in how often people use the term "R&D" ?
I think its usage is more common in India(that too in IT companies).Possibly because we don't find the precise word in specific context??
The term Research and Development is much more than installing and configuring I believe.R&D assumes you know the present work and you are doing the research and later you will develop that.

Correct.Its difficult to predict long term future.Currency value depends on lot of factors such as oil,export,unemployment,agriculture etc.Making Saturday working I believe no company has taken the decision.The typical "wait and see" approach makes sense.

Thanks.When I took math classes,I never thought of PI beyond 3.14 and its ratio of circumference to diameter .Now I really wonder how Euler arrived at this formula?
e^ipi = -1 where e is natural logarithm(which is again irrational number) and i is squre root of -1 and PI again is irrational!!
From the same book:
"Gentlemen, that is surely true, it is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth." �Benjamin Pierce, a Harvard mathematician, after proving Euler's equation, eiπ = �1, in a 19th-century lecture.
