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!
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.
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”:
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.
