Rust and the coming age of high integrity languages
Managing Director, Ferrous Systems GmbH
Rust is undeniably successful. In just over 7 year, it moved from a newly released language to one that is considered as a language for high integrity systems. This success did not happen in isolation - Rusts success is deeply rooted in a number of contributing environmental factors.
In this talk, I’d like to make the case why Rust success is due to a general ground shift in software development. What we are seeing is a resurging interest in software practices that were usually part of safety-critical environments being applied to non-safety related, mission-critical environments. On the other side, we are seeing the worlds of safety and security merging.
I’d like to take a step back and talk about coming opportunities, changes and chances not only for Rust, but also for other languages and products.
