Reliable and empowering. These are the keywords Rust language was made of. And if you didn’t hear about Rust until now, don’t worry! Few people did. And if they have heard of, they didn’t use it because it is new language. But what’s all the fuzz about Rust? Low-level programming languages don’t usually afford heavy runtimes. The best example is Microsoft’s security fixes since 2006 until now. 70% of these issues have root causes in how programmers handled memory safety. That’s a lot. On all their products.
Modern C++ is still not completely memory-safe and data-race free. However, this is what Rust does great. Rust is both fast and memory efficient. And it brings these benefits without the heavy runtime of Java or C#. It brings a type system, it is thread-safe and comes with a great compiler as well. All that to enable early feedback at the earliest moment possible: when coding. With Rust, error messages are developer friendly. Documentation is rich. Package manager is at hand…It is so obvious Rust was build with productivity in mind.
Today, we refer to Rust as a competitor for C or C++. We’ve already seen beautiful implementations in embedded or networking. Nevertheless, Rust became the de facto WebAssembly language. And you know how revolutionary this technology is going to be! This is also one of the reasons why Rust is already associated with modern development.
For an experienced C++ developer, it shouldn’t take more than a week to get used with the tooling and language. However, we advice beginners in programming to start from languages like C#, Python or Java.

Rust is a multi-paradigm system programming language focused on safety, especially safe concurrency. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but is designed to provide better memory safety while maintaining high performance. Rust was originally designed by Graydon Hoare at Mozilla Research, with contributions from Dave Herman, Brendan Eich, and others. The designers refined the language while writing the Servo layout or browser engine, and the Rust compiler. The compiler is free and open-source software dual-licensed under the MIT License and Apache License 2.0. Rust has been the "most loved programming language" in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey every year since 2016. - read more on Wikipedia
