This is my first question here. I am a Tech Consultant who has done some scripting in Perl/Python. I know a bit of C, but nothing major. In the past I have written scripts that would SSH into devices, run diagnostic commands, filter only required output and email it to a distribution list. I’ve been reading about rust from a while and it seems to be a language generally preferred by folks who write systems software (which I dont think I will ever write).
I’ve also tried learning golang, but found it somewhat difficult to learn. My guess is Rust will be even more difficult to learn, so should I just focus first on getting even better with Python and then may be learn Rust? From what I see, Rust is preferred by seasoned/expert programmers/software engineers.
I am primarily looking for a language where I can write programs for REST APIs and may be create REST APIs. I am not sure if Rust is a good option for doing SSH (python has paramiko and I think it’s better suited for ssh stuff).
Please let me know.
