Why use Rust?
Fast and memory efficient
The programs written in Rust are much faster and memory efficient as compared to other languages in general, as there are no runtime Garbage Collectors. Use of compiler instead of interpreter also boosts performance.
Rust ensures that there are no null pointers, dangling pointers, or data races, unlike C / C++. Moreover, you can not access elements outside of array in Rust. Rust also provides unsafe option for more flexibility.
Borrow checker is one of the key features of Rust. Its concept is similar to reference counters. It helps to prevent data races and memory leaks. It is implemented by default in Rust for default ADT like Vectors, Dequeue etc.
Use LLVM Compiler Infrastructure
Rust uses LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, which is also used by C compilers (GCC), C++ compilers, Swift, Python, etc. which helps to optimize the code and provide enhanced security.
Low Level Programming support
Rust supports Low Level Programming and control over memory, like C and C++. Rust also allows the use of Pointers and References as well as executing Assembly Language Instructions and Embedded device support.
Rust is Open Source
Cargo Package Manager
Cargo is the Rust package manager. Cargo downloads the Rust package's dependencies, compiles the packages, makes distributable packages, and helps to share them, on crates.io
Strong and active Community
Rust has strong and welcoming community. You can contact Rust devs and other community members via forums, various chat platforms as well as email. See Rust Official Community Page.
