On joining IOTA
While studying and starting out in my software career, I discovered that I gravitated towards high-performance systems development and the challenges that the environment presents. After getting a good amount of experience working with C++, I heard about the Rust language and the benefits that it could bring to the space. I started to write personal projects in Rust throughout my studies, and used it for small professional projects. Eventually I decided that I wanted to use it full-time in my professional work, and when I learned of the IOTA Foundation, it looked like the perfect opportunity — an open-source, community-oriented team with a mission to create big waves in the IoT space, and plenty of opportunity to learn from the best and grow as part of the project. I am looking forward to getting going!
We are very happy officially announcing Adam joining this important project. Give him a warm welcome!
