Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. Rust started as Graydon Hoare's part-time side project in 2006 and remained so for over 3 years. Mozilla got involved in 2009 once the language was mature enough to run basic tests and demonstrate its core concepts. Though it remains sponsored by Mozilla, Rust is developed by a diverse community of enthusiasts from many different places around the world. The Rust Team is composed of both Mozilla and non-Mozilla members, and rustc (Rust's compiler) has had over 1,000 unique contributors so far.
