Why safe programming matters and why Rust

Fast, safe and sustainable programming with Rust

Security in programming starts from the programming language itself. The majority of CVEs we encounter are due to memory safety issues and I'm here to talk about how a language like Rust is the way forward in avoiding those. Rust is a great programming language. It is a developer favorite and is rapidly gaining a foothold outside of systems programming. It has the potential to become a great general-purpose language with little of the overhead of traditional high-level general-purpose languages. Rust is fast, safe, and sustainable. Today I'm going to take you through the strengths and weaknesses of Rust and why it will be a great general-purpose language. Beware, I'll be doing comparisons with your favorite languages.
