Discussion on: Golang or Rust, that is the question.

I would recommend 2 possible perspectives to help you determine which has greater ROI potential:

  1. Look for OSS projects you fancy and want to use or even maybe contribute to 😉
  2. Companies, teams, or jobs you fancy that require x language

To be honest... been a gopher for 5 years. I love the language, toolchain, the community, the OSS projects.

Rob Pike spoke of his vision of backwards compatibility for the language in one of his blogs. Basically you can run code you wrote back in 2010 today with the latest version and it'll just work. That's straight magic and if they hold true to that vision that would allow for great stability ✨
