I remember when I first started Ruby; we were using JRuby in the early days of CircleCI, and also Mongo. Both of those were well supported, with many people using them. However, we seemed to be the first to ever use them together and I quickly put together this rule of thumb:Paul Biggar, First thoughts on Rust vs. OCaml
You can go off the beaten path once and be OK, but not twice.
Also this gem:
Programming in Rust reminds me a lot of programming in C++: you add a
constto one function, and then you have to follow that
constaround the entire codebase until you finally get to the place where you learn it actually can’t be
const, and so fuck you.
