Challenge the constraints of systems languages with Rust Programming Language

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Choosing a programming language for your next product is an important decision that will have strategic implications like hiring, culture, and the viability of the product. You need to consider important factors like how the programming language will affect the turnaround time from idea to reality and what cost benefits it would bring?

But it really depends upon the particular use case at hand. Some applications need to be fast and yet others focus more on security, convenience or performance. It is here that the Rust programming language emerges out to be the winner. Rust is fast, secure, and easy to program in. It’s a great choice if you’re building an application where high performance is critical like embedded systems, gaming engines, operating systems, browser components, and simulation engines for VR.

Major corporations and startups across the world like Mozilla, Dropbox, Yelp, Braintree, and others are using Rust because of its following advantages –

  • Safer than C/C++ – No manual management of memory as Rust emphasizes safe code along with ensuring performance, something that systems languages like C/C++ cannot provide.
  • Delivers high performance – It’s amazingly fast & memory-efficient.
  • Ensures reliability & Scalability – It helps scale distributed systems and prevents crashes and data races.
  • It’s cross-platform – It supports all major platforms, be it Linux, Windows or macOS.

We have handpicked a few more resources that our Rust experts have contributed to the Rust community. We strongly recommend choosing Rust for your next performance-critical application.

How Knoldus developed an Image Recognition application with Rust?

Knoldus engineers developed Hawk, an image recognition system, with the Rust programming language and AWS services. Hawk enhances the security of the concerned premises by helping the management gather information to uncover patterns in check-in time. It works by generating a similarity score & can be integrated with any first-phase authentication system.
