BlackBerry (BB) is partnering with Elektrobit to support the Rust programming language.

Rust programming language empowers developers to build safe, reliable and efficient automotive software. As a memory-safe language, it is quickly gaining momentum in the automotive industry, where mission-critical software is crucial.

Elektrobit is a global vendor of embedded and connected software products and services for the automotive industry. It offers flexible, innovative solutions for car infrastructure software, connectivity & security, automated driving and related tools, and user experience. Elektrobit is a wholly-owned, independently-operated subsidiary of Continental.

 John Wall, SVP and Head, BlackBerry QNX, commented on the news.

“Rust is fast becoming an important tool for the developer community. We listened to our customers when they said they needed it supported. Safety is our ethos, and shouldn’t be something you opt in to. It should always be there by default. With Rust, we can continue to guarantee our customers a frictionless experience on our Software Development Platform.”

Elektrobit and BlackBerry QNX have a long history as collaborators and a robust production-proven track record. Elektrobit worked closely with BlackBerry QNX on the Rust project, contributing code, ensuring code quality, handling project management and interacting with the Rust community.

BlackBerry provides intelligent security software and services to enterprises and governments around the world.

BlackBerry Limited (BB) is down 1.47 per cent, trading at C$4.70 per share at 12:49 pm ET.
