Unwrap()Ing Rust on Embedded Linux

Wednesday, April 17 at 9:55am

In late 2022, we began migrating our embedded codebase from C to Rust, aiming to enhance feature development speed, code confidence, and coding enjoyment. This talk shares key lessons from this transition, aiding developers considering or adopting Rust. Join, Memfault, Field CTO, Thomas Sarlandie to learn effective strategies for navigating this change, set new standards in the field and have more fun doing it! Here's what you'll learn:
  • Insights into our experienced engineers mastering Rust, including time investment and key resources.
  • Strategies for simultaneous C and Rust codebases.
  • Challenges of Rust integration into Yocto, ensuring compatibility across versions and architectures.
  • And more!
