      In the large yearly stack overflow survey it has been the “most loved programming language” for the past 8 years in a row and at the moment its admiration is only growing. I don’t see anything stop this streak anytime soon. For good reasons.

      For the eighth year in a row, Rust has topped the chart as “the most desired programming language” in Stack Overflow’s annual developer survey.

      From the very first sentence of the article.

          Probably the most beautiful-looking language, but doesn’t have great performance. Also it’s not strictly typed, and garbage-collected. I used to use it for scripts, but now I just script in rust.

      I don’t know a ton of people who write Rust regularly, but most people at least somewhat familiar with it love the idea of the language.

      Though of course actually using the language is a different story, as the compiler can be intimidating.

        as the compiler can be intimidating

        I thought compiler messages being way better than others was one of the selling points.

          Compiler messages are first in class, but the borrow checker still makes for quite a brutal learning curve

    Rust, combined with its’ excellent tooling, is the only language that has managed to make me feel like a genius while writing code. It may not be for everyone, but I personally absolutely love the ergonomics, safety and performance promises the language makes.
