I do really like C++.

And yes, this would work.

Many Rust shills seem to have some rust in their brain...

All the noise I see is from people insisting that Rust developers are noisy, and their favorite language is much better types-don't-solve-bugs-undefined-behavior-is-fine-and-memory-errors-are-not-a-problem.

Actual Rust developers have been silent for years.

I tend to stick to interpreted languages so I can't weigh in on the Rust vs. C++ debate, but I know that if you're trying to make headway against a language as entrenched as C++ is you've got to get loud.

As a rust dev myself... It's my right to be obnoxious

I once shared that I had a bad first experience with Rust and no less than four Rust developers arrived to inform me that I was either hallucinating, or bad at programming, or both.

I haven't had this much fun winding up a sensitive community since I shared how I really felt about Java Spring, in it's heyday.

Bloody hell mate. A little bit of warning before so casually dropping Java Spring out there.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago

Sorry. I'll use the content warning format next time.

I suspect there are a lot of "Rust devs" that are little more than kool-aid drinkers. Common refrains are that Rust is the fastest language, most type-safe language, and most powerful language. Rust certainly seems to move the state of the art forward in some ways, but you can still write garbage code in it.

I've worked with lots of different people in lots of different languages, and I think I'd rather good people in a bad language than the other way around by a mile.

You can write garbage code in rust, but the compiler will beat you with a stick for doing so.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 month ago

Pfft, that's only because you write garbage code in rust.

I write garbage code in lots of languages!
