In 2013, I discovered the Rust programming language and quickly decided to learn it and make it my main programming language.
In 2017, I moved to Berlin and joined Parity as a Rust developer. The task that occupied my first few months was to build rust-libp2p, a peer-to-peer library in asynchronous Rust (~89k lines of code at the moment). Afterwards, I integrated it in Substrate (~400k lines of code), and have since then been the maintainer of the networking part of the code base.
