Offer Myself for free for a project with Rust!


#1

Hi All!
My name is Giovanni, and i’m a self-employed system engineer , with a background in programming languages like :asm, c, c++, python. Now i’m start to learn Rust, and the best way to do that is the practice!!
If someone is interested, i offer some of my time for free for any kind of project rust related (programming).
Send me a PM if you are interested!
Thanks!

The Rust compiler itself is written in Rust and there are many open issues some of which are marked as “easy”


#3

Or any number of open source projects.

Maybe mention some of the sorts of things that you’re interested in?

I am currently experimenting with porting borgbackup to rust. No idea how far I will get, but I will (and currently do!) learn quite a lot.

I am a rust beginner and I currently fight with the compiler (ownership, lifetime and borrowing…), while implementing the chunker. Maybe you could do some experiments as well. :slight_smile:

I would say that the best project is (a) at the right easy level (b) really gets your interest.

Often the best first project is to re-implement something you have done in another language.

You can also have a look at “This week in Rust”:

https://this-week-in-rust.org/

There is a section called “Call for Participation” where you can contribute to the projects listed.

Alacritty is a cross-platform, GPU-accelerated terminal emulator and it has many open issues and is still a young project.

Many thanks to all for reply!
Tomorrow i’ll take a look to the projects and i will choose one suitable for my skills.
My primary interest is Network Programming and concurrency, but right now i don’t have enough skills for those areas.
Thanks again :slight_smile:
