New Channel: #rust-beginners


Hey all! One bit of feedback that the community team has gotten is that main IRC channels are often hostile to beginner questions. While we all know #rust isn’t like that, new people can’t possibly know!

As such, I’ve gone ahead and created #rust-beginners as a channel. This doesn’t mean that beginner questions aren’t welcome in #rust, but we can make sure to be extra helpful when we know people are new. If you enjoy helping people learn Rust, I encourage you to idle there. Thanks!


Which IRC server is this hosted on?


Found it. It’s FreeNode


It’s not, it’s on Mozilla’s IRC, like all of our other channels.


Oh. Thanks!
