Rust and its ecosystem is developed by a diverse mix of staff (from a variety of companies) and volunteers, from all over the world and with a range of circumstances. And “developed” goes far beyond code, to include documentation, podcasts, community work, and more.

People and companies often ask how they can give back to the community and sponsor important work in the Rust world. I think the best approach is to provide direct “match-making” between sponsors and people doing valuable work, making it possible for sponsors to direct their funds and making the individuals more visible.

This page is a first attempt at facilitating sponsorship. This is not an officially endorsed list, but it is a list of Rustaceans that I have personally vetted and sponsored, and encourage you to support. Each of them has a long, public history of impactful work in the community.

Use the Patreon links to sponsor individuals, contact them directly for contract work, or write me at aturon@mozilla.com to find another arrangement.

If you’re interested in being vetted for this list, please reach out.

Interests: Rust on embedded devices


I want Rust to become a major player in the field of embedded systems as I believe it holds so much potential to improve the status quo. To that effect, I have been doing a bunch of groundwork in this area. Here’s some of my recent work:

But there’s still lots of ecosystem and tooling work to do! Among my ongoing work you’ll find:

Chris Krycho (@chriskrycho)
