Basics

  • Rust was created by Modzilla for Firefox as a replacement for C++

Pros

  • It shines in areas like mobile, where performance matters.
  • Has emphasis on 'safe code'. "With "safe code," objects are managed by the programming language from the beginning to the end. The developer doesn't o any pointer arithmetic or manage memory, as can be necessary in C or C++ programs."

Critiques

  • Luke Dashjr has publicly 'warned' people about Rust saying: "it's not possible to compile Rust code, without trusting a third-party Rust compiler binary. There is only one Rust compiler, and itself written in Rust, so a recursive backdoor cannot be ruled out."
