The Story

If we're going to move critical software infrastructure to memory safe code we're going to need to make some investments in tools. It needs to be as easy as possible to build safer software.

What We've Done

  1. We contracted with Rémy Rakic to improve Rust compile times from January 2022 through September 2023.
  2. We contracted with Ferrous Systems to make various improvements to the bindgen tool. Work started in August of 2022 and concluded in December of 2023. The following work was completed:

What's Next

Our work in this area is complete for now.
