Ask anything to Rust Language Team

RE:

I feel learning Rust needs functional programming experience, being coming from C background I am facing difficulty in solving problems rust way.

I would like to learn rust by contributing to the open source code, for now can you please recommend some rust projects where I can contribute as a beginner?

I am also interested in embedded systems, what's the plan to support micro-controllers like ARM cortexM3 and friends? Is anybody is doing work on this?

As for contributing, there's a big drive right now to get people involved with Rust itself and related projects! See https://blog.rust-lang.org/2017/09/18/impl-future-for-rust.html for a big list, or https://www.rustaceans.org/findwork to just dive in.

There's a lot of work on ARM! Check out http://blog.japaric.io/quickstart/; you use the thumbv7m-none-eabi triple for the M3.

https://www.tockos.org/ is also a very interesting project I'm excited about.
