Why Discord is switching from Go to Rust
I just came across this article via the 2020-02-08 O’Reilly Programming Newsletter:
While I’ve greatly enjoyed — and become increasingly productive in — Go, using it mainly to enhance Joker to automatically include Go’s standard library and (more recently) start up more quickly (about which I plan to write another blog post soon) — I’ve been planning to look into Rust as a possible new low-level systems-programming language to replace C in my arsenal.
Would Joker (or a similar fast-startup, low-overhead, Clojure interpreter) be worth considering re-implementing in Rust?
I plan to look into startup-time performance for Rust programs soon!
