Details

Coming out of Mozilla Research, Rust is a robust and fast programming
language. It's robust because the compiler guarantees memory-safety
and thread-safety [3]. It's fast, because it does not need a garbage
collection, has a very light runtime and, under the hood, benefits
from clangs low-level optimizations.

On top of that, it comes with a dependency management system that even
npm maintainers admitted to be beautiful [1]. This allows Rust to spawn a
large stack of use-cases from Systems programming e.g. for operating
systems to WASM in the browser.

Perhaps that's why Rust has been voted the most loved language on Stack Overflow for the last 4 years in a row [2] and why more and more companies
(e.g. Mozilla, Oracle, Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft) are using it. [4]
