Abstract

In many ways, designing a programming language is about tradeoffs. For "the right language for the job" track, we'll take a look at some tradeoffs in the design of Rust, and how that makes it more suitable for some kinds of projects than others. In particular, we'll talk about Rust's "bend the curve" philosophy towards tradeoffs.
