In May 2022 over 70,000 developers told us how they learn and level up, which tools they’re using, and what they want.

One key fact to remember is that this stat is likely aided by the fact that few people are forced to use Rust by their job or similar. I’m sure if less enterprises used Java that a higher percentage of people would like to continue using it.

That being said I do love Rust, it is currently my preferred language for most things. But this number is likely a bit inflated compared to some other direct comparisons.

Also, Rust (17.6%) got ahead of Python (17.59%), TypeScript (17.03%), Go (16.41%), and JavaScript (12.98%) in “the most wanted technology” category too!

I wonder how much available alternatives within the domain the language serves play a role here. Rust is mainly competing against C and C++, and most people would presumably see Rust as a huge improvement.

I was recently introduced to Rust. It feels amazing. It’s like “let’s do c++ from scratch, but with everything we learned in the past 30 years”.

Rust es rápido y eficiente con la memoria (viene sin runtime, ni colector de basura). También tiene un sistema de tipos y un modelo de propiedad (ownership) que garantizan seguridad de memoria y seguridad de hilos, que le permiten al desarrollador eliminar muchas clases de bugs en tiempo de compilación. Además la comunidad es maravillosa, la documentación es excelente y el rendimiento es a veces superior con Rust que con C++. Aparte de eso, Rust es un lenguaje de programación más «verde» que C++.
