Hello, I was recently looking into Rust and decided to learn it. What kinds of applications is this language really good for/ useful? And are there many jobs for this?

High performance applications that can't risk using a garbage collector are great. But I'm also finding Rust to be a great fit where I was previously using things like Python and Go. This isn't to say there isn't a significant learning curve, but I'd say it's well worth it!

i see. Thanks! I was using go but got turned off by the lack of generics, and since JAVA is my first language I like that a lot. I guess I'll try Rust.
