Microsoft joins Rust Foundation


Don’t know how many people on here code but I have looked forward to the evolution of Rust into it’s own legal foundation rather than remaining under Mozilla. Mozilla has been a very good steward for the Rust language development, but with Mozilla on shaky foundations and the need to bring in wider support in the industry… and after a year in discussion (at least) … the Rust Foundation has been born. The current Board of Directors – Member Directors current consist of Microsoft, Google, AWS/Amazon, Mozilla, and Huawei.

Rust is still at an early stage in development but I have been amazed at the amount of progress it has made — both in it’s base language and tooling but also in the amount of work going into foundational libraries.
