Embedded Rust Training Remote training provided by Ferrous Systems

Remote training provided by Ferrous Systems

Learning a new programming language is a complex task, even for very experienced programmers. Being able to learn in a self-driven way is a great skillset to have, but relying on this ability is not time effective or the best use of this skill. Professional training can help you save time and reach your goals more effectively. Ferrous Systems has been an integral member of the Rust community since before Rust 1.0. In-depth knowledge and experience ensure that you will receive meaningful and relevant insights into how Rust can best be applied to your project.

Get up to speed with Rust Fundamentals and Embedded Rust

Everyone has their own unique learning needs. Ferrous Systems’ trainers work with you to ensure all attendees become familiar with Rust fundamentals like the Rust toolchain, syntax, basic types, and data structures before moving on to concepts unique to Rust, like the ownership model as it applies to building Embedded Systems, as well as writing modules and reading Rust’s documentation. The trainer will then move on to cover Embedded Fundamentals, Down-the-stack of Embedded Rust, and The Real-Time Interrupt-driven Concurrency framework (RTIC).

We combine theoretical input and hands-on exercises.

The training combines lectures, to give you a theoretical foundation in Rust, with hands-on exercises that focus on applying what has been learned in context and in a supportive environment. The exercises are a fundamental part of the learning journey: Only by applying the newly learned information is the learning process complete.
