Am I dumb in thinking I can use Rust as a Fast Python and leave it at that?

    I'm a long-time python developer and develop on the side in Rust for about as long as you, I also found myself familiar with the available datastructures and algorithms, as well as some FP-inspired syntax ( i.e. iterators instead of for loops ) . evcxr is reminiscent of ipython, it can even be integrated with jupyter notebook. And indeed I was surprised to find myself in such a familiar world. It's definitely something that more python developers should be aware of.

  • PyO3

    Rust bindings for the Python interpreter

    Just in case you haven't heard of PyO3, here's a link to their GitHub. Very cool and useful project for mixing rust and python

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • PyCall.jl

    Package to call Python functions from the Julia language

    Julia and Python interop should not be a problem at all. Actually Julia has one of the best interops I’ve ever seen, so much that swift copied it.
