Ryan Dahl introduces Rust to Javascript community

I just found this great presentation by Ryan Dahl, creator of nodejs, in which he introduces his latest ideas to a Javascript conference:

"Deno, a new way to JavaScript" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjdJzNoT_qg

Deno is basically a new and improved node.js.

V8 JS engine, and TypeScript as application platform outside of the browser. But making use of modern JS features such as async and modules. And importantly making use of V8 security and sand boxing features.

Interestingly he has used Rust and Tokio in his Deno project. And enabling use of Rust along side Javascript in applications is built in.

Also interestingly he told a JS conference that "The era of Dynamic languages is over." Positively shocking!
