About Zig

pub fn say() []const u8 {
    return "Hello, world!";

Key Features of Zig



Zig lets you focus on debugging your application rather than your programming language knowledge.


Zig has a fresh approach to metaprogramming based on compile-time code execution and lazy evaluation


Zig produces fast and memory efficient executables: you are free to manage memory yourself.


Zig lets you write fast, clear code capable of handling all error conditions.


Zig can build for a plethora of targets and cross-compiling is a first class use case.


Zig's community is decentralized. Development is funded by the non-profit Zig Software Foundation.

Get mentored the Zig way

Every language has its own way of doing things. Zig is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a Zig developer and how to write idiomatic code in Zig. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in Zig - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
