Should you learn Rust Lang in 2022?!

Why RUST is a good language to learn

RUST has great tooling. The RUST compiler, Cargo, is very easy to use. Cargo can manage dependencies, compile code, and run tests. The RUST community has also created many great tools, such as the Rust Playground and rustfmt.
RUST is also very portable. It can be used on many different platforms, such as Linux, Windows, macOS, and even embedded systems. This makes RUST a great choice for crossplatform development.
RUST is an excellent language to learn in 2022. It is fast, safe, concurrent, and portable. It also has great tooling and a thriving community. If you are looking for a systems programming language, RUST is the perfect choice.

The history of RUST

RUST was developed by Graydon Hoare at Mozilla Research, with the help of a team of contributors. It is sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation.
RUST is an open source language, with a strong community. It is used by many large companies, such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. RUST is a safe and concurrent language that is suitable for systems programming.

How RUST is different from other languages

RUST is a systems programming language that is different from other languages because it is memory safe, has ownership, and borrows. RUST is memory safe because the language does not allow dangling pointers or null pointers. This means that RUST is more difficult to write programs with errors that can lead to crashes. RUST also has ownership, which means that each piece of data has a single owner and the owner can decide when to give up or transfer ownership. This can make RUST programs more difficult to write, but it also makes RUST programs more reliable. Finally, RUST borrows data instead of copying it. This means that RUST can avoid unnecessary work and use less memory.

What you can do with RUST once you learn it

RUST has strong support for concurrency, with builtin tools such as the Arc smart pointer that make it easy to write safe code. RUST also has excellent memory safety, with automatic garbage collection and ownership rules that prevent dangling pointers.
RUST is an excellent choice for creating safe and efficient software. With its strong support for concurrency and memory safety, RUST can help you create robust applications that are able to handle high loads.

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the programming language you learn should be based on what you want to use it for. However, if you're looking for a language that will be popular in 2022 and beyond, RUST is a good choice. It has a growing community, and its popularity is only increasing. So if you're looking to stay ahead of the curve, RUST is a good language to learn.

I'm reading the hands-on microservice with Rust book and trying to build one microservice along with the read, its easy to see why Rust is so enjoyable and I'm personally loving the way the compiler teach me.
Hope more companies in my country start using Rust in their services as I want to work in this language next year or so. Thanks for the post!

I'm using it for WASM and IoT Devices.

But I'm still very, very fond of C.
