Welcome to the World of Rust

If you are reading this book, you are probably as excited about Rust as I am. Since its first stable release in 2015, Rust has come a long way in terms of features and stability. Developers around the world are fascinated about how Rust can combine features that were once thought as unavoidable tradeoffs: performance with memory safety and low-level control with productivity. Despite the infamous steep learning curve, Rust has gained popularity over the years. It was named the “most loved programming language” in the StackOverflow survey four years in a row, from 2016 to 2019. Many big companies and organizations, including Facebook, Microsoft, Dropbox, and npm, have started using Rust in production.
