Rustforce is a Rust library for salesforce. Rust is a relatively new programming language, that can be used as a general purpose language, but it is also powerful enough to be used for embedded programming. It’s unique memory management (borrow – check) system makes Rust incredibly fast.


Applications: imagine a busy drug testing laboratory that runs 10000 specimens a day and uses salesforce to manage accounts and patients. When specimens arrive, they need to be scanned with barcode readers, and then information needs to be entered into salesforce. If we automated this process with Rustforce (wrote a program to create accounts when a barcode is scanned and uploaded it to the scanners), it could save a ton of time spent on data entry and could prevent potential data errors.
