Rust Annual Survey

The 2018 Rust Annual Survey results are out. All of it was interesting to read through it, but I was interested to see the questions around adoption in the workplace. I’m not sure what it is about Rust, but I like the language and the community around it. I sort of feel like I am part of it, even though I’m really a leaf node.

The parts of the associated Hacker News thread that I read were interesting to me. This comment from Steve Klabnik is a nice rundown of current production use cases of Rust. From that I learned that AWS just released a new virtualization technology called Firecracker that is written in Rust.
