The Rust programming language is becoming more and more popular among developers: although its prevalence is only 14th, but ranks 1st in terms of popularity growth.

This is reported by The Next Web with reference to data from the annual Stack Overflow developer survey and the PYPL Programming Language Popularity Index.

At the same time, more than 80% of developers who worked with Rust said that they want to use this programming language next year.

According to this data, Rust's popularity has grown the most over the past 5 years – by 2.1%.

PYPL is created by analyzing how often Google searches for tutorials on a specific programming language.

History of the creation of Rust

Rust was created by Mozilla programmer Graydon Hoare in 2006. Inspiration came to the developer after the elevator in an apartment building broke down, which forced him to climb all the way to the 21st floor.

Greydon realized that situations like this usually arise due to memory problems.

That's why he was inspired to write a little code and call it Rust – after a group of disease-causing fungi that are “simply designed to survive.”

The first version of Rust was launched in 2015, and since then it has only been gaining popularity.

AI factor

One of the main reasons for the growing popularity of Rust can be called the rapid development of AI.

The GitHub Octoverse report notes that the total number of projects with generative artificial intelligence has increased by 248% compared to 2023, and the number of participants in such projects has increased by 148%.

Rust is well suited for AI applications because it prioritizes performance and security without sacrificing speed. For example, in 2020, Discord developers rewrote one of their systems in Rust and found that it now runs 10 times faster.

It is also used for many different applications in the field of web development, systems programming, games and databases.
