One of the main objectives of Julia is solving the two-language problem. This means that by using Julia, you don't have to prototype in a dynamic language like Python for flexibility and later rewrite the code in a compiled language like C/C++ for performance.

This goal did catch me while picking a programming language for my bachelor's thesis in physics. But after regularly using and even teaching Julia, do I still think that Julia solves that two-language problem?

And why do I think that Rust is the actual solution in some cases?
