Systems programs are at the base of everything an embedded engineer works with, but manually managing memory safely can be difficult to get correct in traditional systems languages like C and C++. Rust gives a programmer a high-performance systems language that enforces data safety through its strong type system, eliminating memory corruption and data race issues at compile time. In this presentation, Jonathan Creekmore will give an overview of the Rust programming language and explain how systems programmers can use it to protect their programs from memory corruption and data races, leading to safer, more secure programs. Additionally, Jonathan will show how to use meta-rust to bring Rust programs into Yocto systems.
