Thread-safe, reliable, and lightning-fast, Rust has been the most loved programming language on Stack Overflow for four years and counting! This open source systems language gets its amazing speed in large part from its memory safety—and without resource-greedy garbage collection. Offering freedom from a runtime requirement, a rich type system, and control over low-level details, Rust is a cut above the rest in areas including command line applications, WebAssembly, and embedded services. Is it any wonder Rust is a favorite among systems programmers everywhere?
