Sponsored by the Internet’s Breakfast Club, Mozilla, Rust is a new programming language rising in popularity. I recently started developing in Rust and I wanted to share my experience, especially as a relatively new developer, in learning the language and releasing my project as a Rust crate.
Over the past two months, I worked on a feature for Project Fluent. My feature was needed in the Rust implementation of Fluent and was published as a Rust crate, making my code available to the entire Rust community. Completing this project brought me a great sense of satisfaction, and having contributed a fundamental internationalization crate to the Rust ecosystem is possibly the biggest milestone in my career as a developer. I documented the crate in this blog post on the Mozilla localization blog.
