Discussion on: Rust or Go for web development?

Forgot to mention one big thing and that is rust has no garbage collector like Go does. Not that it's bad just worth noting. Also I think wasmer is awesome either way you go; and checkout neon/yew/actix for rust or Gin for go and decide what you like. Rust gives you a lot more control but requires you to make more decisions and code. Try both go with what you like. Rust jobs will be there in the future. There are plenty of Go jobs now.

Omitted that on purpose. You are very right but the compiler takes care of allocating memory for you. And in 90% of use cases you will never need more than that, although Rust allows for manual memory management for those 10% of use cases you pretend to really know what you are doing. :-)
