If you have written code in either Rust or Go, you’ll recognize some similarities and differences between them. While there is some overlap between the goals of the two languages, there are plenty of differences between the two. Each language offers benefits depending on the problem you’re trying to solve.

We spoke with Damien Stanton, a software engineer who has gained experience in both languages. Our conversation with Damien delves into various aspects of the two languages: their differences, similarities, and some of the common controversies between the two.


This is a subjective, primarily developer-ergonomics-based comparison of the three languages from the perspective of a Python developer, but you can skip the prose and go to the code samples, the performance comparison if you want some hard numbers, the takeaway for the tl;dr, or the Python, Go, and Rust diffimg implementations.
