There and Back Again: Our Rust Adoption Journey

The introduction of a new programming language is a significant undertaking with long-term implications — a choice not to be taken lightly. 

TrueLayer's main business is not system programming, yet we decided to bet on Rust. Why? How?

During the talk we will walk through our adoption story: from the first CLIs and cheeky projects to a Rust-backed new product line, with Rust-specific job openings. We'll share our expectations, our challenges, our doubts, the mistakes we made and the lessons we learned as we ramped up our usage.

If you are looking to embark on a similar journey, even if for a different language, this talk is for you.
