If the compiler is happy, then you can pretty certain that there are is no memory unsafety or race conditions in your code.

@flajann2 Significantly easier build system, no dependency hell, safe by default, lots of nice concise high level syntax that C++ doesn't have

It's probably easier to (safely) interact with external libraries in Rust than with C++14
