  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • GitHub repo image

    Encoding and decoding images in Rust (by image-rs)

    I've used fits-rs before, but it lacks interop with the awesome image crate, so I only really used it for quick prototyping and then rolled my own fits parser.

  • GitHub repo book

    The Rust Programming Language

    In addition, if you're new to Rust completely, I'd recommend that you read The Book to get a handle on the syntax, differences from other languages, and do some examples.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
