Learn more about how the Rust programming language shares many of the advantages offered by Haskell such as a strong type system, great tooling, polymorphism, immutability, concurrency, and great software testing methodologies. Rust is a good choice when you need to squeeze in extra performance.

it seems that fpcomplete do more rust stuff than haskell these days. I kept seeing snoyman appear in rust channel very often.
