This page collects links to projects related to bringing Rust into the systems programming curriculum as a replacement for C/C++.
From the Rust Programm Language book:
Rust is for students and those who are interested in learning about systems concepts. Using Rust, many people have learned about topics like operating systems development. The community is very welcoming and happy to answer student questions. Through efforts such as this book, the Rust teams want to make systems concepts more accessible to more people, especially those new to programming.
