I have a paradox in my mind.
On the other hand I love Rust because it is so anal about types and reference aliases, the borrow checker and the rest. It can be frustrating in the extreme to get Rust to agree to compile ones code. But there is great confidence that when it does things are going to work. More importantly there is great confidence that when you come to make changes sometime later Rust won't let you accidentally break your program.
PHP on the other hand. Worked with it at the turn of the century. Horrible. Put me off having anything to do with web development for about two decades.
