An open source and widely praised programming language for developing system software and applications that is more robust and secure. Developed at Mozilla Research in the mid-2000s, Rust was released to the public in 2015, and its syntax evolved from OCaml, the Cyclone variant of C and C++. Rust is primarily known for its error handling and compiler safety checks that prevent a program from crashing. This is normally found in high-level languages, whereas Rust offers these "memory safe" features while providing low-level control like C and C++.
