Nice. This is just what I’ve been looking to do recently. The current libraries just don’t cut it

That’s what, 2 senior engineers for one year in the Bay or NYC?

Maybe 3 or 4 in a low CoL city?

Or maybe it’s more like an army of grad students?

Not too bad.

Edit: doh, it says in the article

Recommendations will likely include the hiring of one or more Interop Initiative engineers

They should rather fund rewrites than interop. Who want’s to have C++ filth in their rust projects? If you need to deal with C++, just use carbon (or better: quit your job and become a landscaper, so you never have to look at C++ code ever again).

“How to rewrite your first rust project” meme is pretty funny. Maybe we just do some interopt and the eco system can gradually migrate as new and better ideas need programmed?

Sounds reasonable. I just couldn’t resist this opportunity to post some C++ hate.

I wonder what the planned scope is. C++ is such a fundamentally uncooperative language.
