So, let’s talk about some of the best passive income ideas for Rust developers!

Developing Rust Content

Without a doubt, one of the best ways (in my opinion) to build passive income with Rust is by developing Rust content, what is Rust content? It is literally content about Rust, essentially, what you’re reading right now is Rust content. I’ve tried many different ways to develop passive income with programming, and this is the best way (again, in my opinion) to build out some passive income streams. So, you could start a blog about coding (like I’ve done), you can also start a YouTube channel and talk about coding, the possibilities are endless, but I would highly recommend to begin developing out some content with you’re Rust experience.

Freelance Software Engineering (Rust Development)

Next up we have the most basic method of making side income with Rust, this is the freelancing method. Freelancing essentially involves you trading your skillset for revenue, in this case, building software for individuals / companies outside of your job. This is by far one of the most popular methods of making side income, if you want a list of some of the most popular freelancing websites check out the link below:
