Rust and crate of wishes for 2018

  1. Make Rust easy-to-digest for newbies. Rust’s NLL (non-lexical lifetime) is a great step. I think free online courses at Udacity, Coursera or EdX can help there. Mozilla should help sponsor that.
  2. The core team should participate in prioritizing and implementing quality crates for productivity needs. Small things like file loggers with rotation, connectors and drivers for databases/redis/rabbitmq/kafka/mongodb, standard HTTP/REST server and other crates are necessary in various technology stacks and their absence can hinder newbies.
