I'm still completely in the excited-newbie honeymoon phase, but writing Rust code feels very wholesome.

I remember you were experimenting with Haskell a long time ago, with favorable impressions -- given Rust is in many ways a blend of C++ and Haskell, what lead you to hold out for so long?

I’m busy... It does feel like a blend of Haskell and C++, which is very appealing.

Cool cool. Let us know in 5 years whether it's 1% or 2% better than C.

You should check out Ada! It's getting Rust-style memory safety in the very near future but it's type system has a few tricks up its sleeve that Rust's doesn't.

I'd the privilege of learning & writing in Ada for safety-critical software at a defence contractor. The design of Ada was so far ahead of its time; it focuses on programming as a human activity, w/ features designed to eliminate/mitigate certain classes of programming errors.

Any thoughts on Golang?

I haven’t written anything in it, but I like all the ideas behind it. Slightly different target than Rust with garbage collection.

Would love to see even more bioinformatics work emerge from Rust. Python's great, but it's memory hungry for string-heavy work.
