The Embedded Rustacean Issue #13

Sponsored by

Hello and welcome to the Embedded Rustacean! This newsletter is a bi-weekly curation of resources and a summary of everything happening around embedded Rust 🦀. This newsletter was started because of the belief in Rust as a programming language with all the traits 🧬 (pun intended) that prime it to become the future of software in embedded systems. We’re another issue closer to that vision.
