Yes, this is a confess about my career regrets. I MUST START TO RUST 5 YEARS AGO!!!
I have 10 years of web development experience. I started to my career as Java develop but now I have strong experiences about Laravel, React and other necessary things (mysql, redis, memcache etc...). And I have good experience about OOP and TDD. I heard about Rust first time about 5 years ago, but I didn't like it at that times. Because it isn't OOP lang and it has different behaviours. For example ownership&borrowing, no exception handling, not inheritence etc... I was think that OOP is best paradigm for writing code and all other languages which doesn't have OOP features are sh*t. BUT I WAS WRONG
After 5 years later, now I feel that my brain is free (like Neo in the Matrix). I read lots of blogs and articles about Rust and now I apologize from Rust. I didn't understand Rust's power and benefits at that time. The more I learn Rust, the better I understand what an amazing language it is. I'm understanding that why Rust is most loved lang, why it is using for blockchain and wasm projects, why it has borrowing features, why it doesn't have exception handling, what's going on behind the scenes. And my love is increasing when I learn lots of things about Rust. I was think that writing code is an art, but writing Rust is greater then this.
Hey Rust, please accept my apologize and after this time I will be with you <3
