  • Why Go and Not Rust?

    > context.Background() is typically only used when one doesn’t care about the result. If you did care about the result, you should be passing the parent context to preserve the circuit breaker timeout in case the operation takes too long.

    Not necessarily. You would use context.Background in a test situation. It's also commonly used for short-lived applications like a CLI invocation. You can see kubectl uses context.Background quite a lot: https://github.com/kubernetes/kubectl/search?q=context.backg...

    > I think the level of pain you experience from mutable references in Rust depends on if you’re coming from an OOP or FP background. I have a FP background and so the patterns I use to build code already greatly restrict mutation. You can usually change code that updates data immutably (creating a new copy of it) with mutable code in rust because the control flow of your program already involves passing that new version back to the caller which also satisfies the borrow checker in most situations.

    There has to be a better solution to needlessly copying data.

    The canonical example client-go app you're most familiar with is kubectl. https://github.com/kubernetes/kubectl/blob/e69a10320e34fd2487b61927f69affbb52e4f0e1/pkg/describe/describe.go#L279 is the kubectl describe kind name... bit that deals with fetching events related the object with that kind/name.
