    I am waiting for non-lexical lifetime support before giving it a try again. Currently the borrow checker is way too anal, making programming in rust not very enjoyable.

      It's a good point, but I think it's important for developers to realize that this day in age it's important for software to be secure. It feels like there should be a better way to accomplish it though.

        My thoughts exactly. I really enjoy reading burntsushi's blog (Rust and Go).

        More info on learning Rust just in case anyone is trying the same thing.

                If you want a fast web framework, Actix Web tops the TechEmpower web framework benchmarks, and is actually pretty nifty.
                Rocket is rather user-friendly, but it doesn't feature async I/O so it ranks very poorly.

                  If you use Nightly, you can use NLL today just by adding #[feature(nll)] to the top of your lib.rs or main.rs file.
                  Personally, I don't have issues with the borrow checker as it is today. NLL will just save a few lines of code here and there.

                    I hang out in /r/rust/ and, the most recent time someone asked about a good web framework, Actix web was the one that was recommended for people wanting to use stable-channel Rust.
