Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • embassy

    Modern embedded framework, using Rust and async.

    That's completely incorrect. The existing ecosystem focuses on web/IO because that's were Async/Await is already being used in other languages so everyone started there. There is significant interest in writing frameworks using async rust in embedded, but the required compiler features for it are still not stable. Check out embassy. Even RTIC has experiments with async.

  • rtic

    Real-Time Interrupt-driven Concurrency (RTIC) framework for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • cugparck

    Cugparck is a modern rainbow table library & CLI.

    Thank you for your concern. I've done plenty of projects that go beyond a "Hello World" such as a GPU accelerated password cracker. I am starting soon a C++/Rust job. I already contributed to codebases I didn't write.

  • rkyv

    Zero-copy deserialization framework for Rust

  • bflat

    C# as you know it but with Go-inspired tooling (small, selfcontained, and native executables)

    A crazy example here.

  • Rust-CUDA

    Ecosystem of libraries and tools for writing and executing fast GPU code fully in Rust.

    Also you might not be aware but you can write cuda in rust now also https://github.com/Rust-GPU/Rust-CUDA
