Rust Experts

$ ferrous --explain

Are you using Rust at work and looking for someone to answer your burning, individual Rust questions? Or do you wish someone would provide support on your journey towards becoming a Rust expert yourself?

Our Rust experts and trainers are happy to help for a fixed monthly price!

A Rust-Experts seat grants you chat-based access to our team comprised of individuals with years of Rust experience in different areas such as embedded Rust, the Rust compiler, or rust-analyzer.

  • Help you re-calibrate your mental models towards idiomatic Rust
  • Evaluate libraries with you
  • Share general tips and tricks
  • Optimize compile times
  • Find tiny fixes and bugs in tooling
  • Small scale code review

Why Ferrous?

We're your support crew

Have an idea that you'd like to research but want to continue working on your main tasks? Send us a question! Have a gnarly problem to debug, but would really like to continue working? We'll do that for you.

Spend your time on the problems that matter to your business.

Get out of the door quickly

New product development often includes a lot of early decisions. How do I lay out my codebase, which library to pick to get started, what is a good strategy to grow a good codebase? We know all that, and we're here to help!

There's no need to bring in day-to-day consulting if you can just get specific questions answered.

Your time is valuable, so why not ask people that probably already know?
