I’m Erick Tryzelaar, the new lead of the Community team. I’m an old-timer on Rust, back when Boxes were tildes, Rcs were ampersands, and the sigils roamed wild. Ah those halcyon days. I live in the Bay Area, and I started Rust Bay Area because I was hungry, and I wanted to eat with other Rustaceans in the area. We meet about once a month (if I’m doing my job right) and have fun talking about Rust. Contrary to popular belief, I do not work at Mozilla, but instead at Cloudera doing big data-y things. Sadly no Rust (yet). My biggest Rust project is Serde, but my heart yearns to play more with Stateful.
If you are interested, would you like to introduce yourself, and what you are interested in? Feel free to share as much or as little as you want. Are you new to Rust and just learning the language? An old timer looking to help mentor folks? Aspiring meetup organizer and don’t know where to start? Let us know!
edit: Forgot to mention I’m
erickt on irc and on github.
