Details

Are you new to Rust, or interested in building interactive physical systems? Join us for a guided workshop, and we will build something together!

This meetup will be the first of a series where we work through the Rust Embedded Discovery book (https://docs.rust-embedded.org/discovery/). No speakers, no sponsors, just hacking together on a workshop.

That's okay if you are new to Rust and/or embedded development - we are happy to help! Some of us have already completed the book, and we will be guiding folks through it.

To fully experience this workshop, we recommend buying your own hardware, which is listed below. But feel free to follow along without the hardware, or pair with a friendly Rustacean.

MEET YOUR HARDWARE:

You will only need two things to get started, which should cost about $30:

* The STM Discovery board: https://www.amazon.com/STMICROELECTRONICS-STM32F3DISCOVERY-EVAL-STM32-DISCOVERY/dp/B00HPLOSV4/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=STM32F3DISCOVERY&link_code=qs&qid=1566367056&s=gateway&sourceid=Mozilla-search&sr=8-1

* Mini USB cable: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-USB-2-0-Cable-Male/dp/B00NH13S44/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=usb-mini+cable&link_code=qs&qid=1566367049&s=gateway&sourceid=Mozilla-search&sr=8-3

The full list of hardware can be found here: https://docs.rust-embedded.org/discovery/02-requirements/index.html

Note that the rest of the hardware won't be needed until later in the workshop.

CODE OF CONDUCT:

Please review the Rust community's Code of Conduct (https://www.rust-lang.org/en-US/conduct.html) before coming to the meetup. Let's make this meetup great for everyone!
