I wasn’t sure where to put this note - it is not really “Off Topic” but none of the other categories seemed exactly right either . .
Although I don’t really have a lot of time and since I see the MaidSafe development as being critical to all my IT projects and since Rust seems the obvious candidate language to use in parts of the projects, I have decided I don’t have much alternative but to start learning Rust (but to be honest, I probably feel too old to be learning a new language). I have put a new section on my personal web site summarising the background to this rather big decision for me:
http://philiprhoades.org - scroll down to “Rust, Ogre and MaidSafe” and click on the heading.
I thought it might be of interest to some people here.
