Hi, I'm Cole, and I became a Rust NYC meetup co-organizer back in 2019. When the pandemic started, I started focusing on making sure all of our talks for Rust NYC would be available to stream and view virtually. With this shift, I created the "Rust East Coast" as an effort to make more talks accessible via virtual attendance and recordings.
We are a small community of Rust enthusiasts that have been bonded by attending talks in mostly Rust NYC and online meetups, and I'd love to invite more into our group now that we have a few ways to offer support and collaborate.
To give you an idea of how we're set up, I'm going to share our channel intros, which I recently reorganized in response to feedback from some members.
