Who uses Rust, and what are the benefits of choosing this programming language for your stack?
If you haven’t yet heard, Rust is one of the most promising and most loved programming languages out there.
In this article, I will look at nine large companies that use Rust and delve into the reasons for their choice.
Dropbox uses Rust for parts of its file synchronization engine. Since the engine is highly concurrent, writing, testing, and debugging it is hard. Therefore, the team chose to rewrite it in Rust. Rust’s static types and heavy compile-time checks give it an advantage over dynamically typed languages like Python when you need to tackle complex codebases and concurrent code.
Rust has been a force multiplier for our team, and betting on Rust was one of the best decisions we made. More than performance, its ergonomics and focus on correctness has helped us tame sync’s complexity. We can encode complex invariants about our system in the type system and have the compiler check them for us. (Source)

A mix of topics of casting, shadowing, constants and static variables inside the Rust Programming Language. This Rust programming language tutorial series is aimed at easing your training step by step.
This presentation was the first experiment with livestreaming of the Rust Zürisee meetup group in Switzerland. Gerhard is sharing parts of his story migratin...
Steve Klabnik is a member of the Rust core team, an active open-source contributor, and author of The Rust Programming Language, Rails 4 in Action, and Designing Hypermedia APIs books. In 2012 and 2016, we invited Steve to speak at the RailsClub (now RubyRussia) conference. Since then, Steve has been working on Rust a lot, did a lot of interesting things and we realized that we should definitely interview him once again!
Hello everyone, recently I have come across a feature in Rust, known as non_exhaustive. It was introduced in Rust 1.40.0 . This attribute prevents source code-breaking changes in projects downstream.
Rust vs Go - Which Is More Popular - Go and Rust are two of the hottest compiled programming languages. I develop in Go full-time and love it, and I'm learning more about Rust recently - its an exc
