6. A Gentle Introduction To Rust by Steve J Donovan
The aim of this tutorial is to take you to a place where you can read and write enough Rust to fully appreciate the various learning resources available online.
The book covers a fairly wide range of material including structs, enums and matching, filesystem and processes, modules and Cargo. It then provides material on standard library containers, error handling, threads, networking and sharing. The final chapters cover object-oriented programming, parsing with Nom, and areas of Ruby that can cause issues.

7. Rust for Rubyists by Steve Klabnik
This was the author’s first community tutorial for Rust. He since moved on to improving the official documentation and The Rust Programming Language.
Rust for Rubyists is an introductory text.
There’s also a GitHub code repository available at https://github.com/steveklabnik/rust_for_rubyists.
8. Learn Rust With Entirely Too Many Linked Lists by Alexis Beingessner
Learn Rust With Entirely Too Many Linked Lists teaches you basic and advanced Rust programming entirely by having you implement 6 linked lists.
- The following pointer types:
- Ownership, borrowing, inherited mutability, interior mutability, Copy.
- All The Keywords: struct, enum, fn, pub, impl, use, …
- Pattern matching, generics, destructors.
- Basic Unsafe Rust.

9. The Embedded Rust Book by Jorge Aparicio, James Munns, and others
The Embedded Rust Book: An introductory book about using the Rust Programming Language on “Bare Metal” embedded systems, such as Microcontrollers.
Embedded Rust is for everyone who wants to do embedded programming while taking advantage of the higher-level concepts and safety guarantees the Rust language provides.
This book tries to be as general as possible but to make things easier for both the readers and the writers it uses the ARM Cortex-M architecture in all its examples. However, the book doesn’t assume that the reader is familiar with this particular architecture and explains details particular to this architecture where required.
This book caters towards people with either some embedded background or some Rust background, however we believe everybody curious about embedded Rust programming can get something out of this book.
