Please take a look on pypy 😉
I also don't recommend Rust. My preference goes to Go which is way easier for approximately the same performances if you only need speed, coroutines and good memory management. For specific problems, like trying to work on new Linux kernel or for specific memory management, Rust is ok.

Excellent, thanks for the feedback! I'll check out pypy. I am mainly interested in Rust because it's relevant to my thesis and cyclic redundancy checks. I am also following a few of the rust cryptography crates on GitHub, which has a lot of community involvement. I don't know very much about go, but I will start looking into it anyway because we have a GO SDK for hedera that I need to be acquainted with. Either way, super grateful for your input. The community here is fantastic :relaxed

Yes, I am not trying to criticize this or that language without reason. I just noticed a tendency to see the community using tools by fashion effect and I find it very unfortunate for technologies that are losing visibility while they are much more suitable for many projects.
And indeed, the community on this site is really cool 😎

I can see where you're coming from. Programing can be a vast field and finding the right tool for the job can seem like aa daunting task. Finding a needle in the hey stack at times. It's a good learning experience though!
