Launching the 2016 State of Rust Survey

May 9, 2016 · The Rust Community Team

Rust's first birthday is upon us (on May 15th, 2016), and we want to take this opportunity to reflect on where we've been, and where we're going. The Rust core team plans a post next week giving some of their perspective on the year. But we are also eager to hear from you.

Thus, as part of the celebrations, the community team is pleased to announce the official 2016 State of Rust Survey! Whether or not you use Rust today, we want to know your opinions. Your responses will help the project understand its strengths and weaknesses, and to establish development priorities for the future.

Completing this survey should take about 5 to 10 minutes, and is anonymous unless you choose to give us your contact information. We will be accepting submissions until June 8th, 2016. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Rust Community team at

Please help us spread the word by sharing the above link on your social network feeds, at meetups, around your office and in other communities.

Thanks, everyone who helped develop, polish, and test the survey! Once it closes, we will summarize and visualize the results here on

Happy birthday, Rust. Have another great year.
