Rhein-Main area Rust meetup (Germany)


#1

Hello everyone,

I’m trying to start a monthly Rust meetup in Germany’s Rhein-Main area. The planned format is a casual meeting with a few talks mixed in. Rust newbies would be very welcome.

I’ve already organized a location in Darmstadt (Cowo21) and I’m willing to give a talk. I’d like to hold the first meetup in the second week of November.

At this point, I’d like to get some general feedback. Once I know if there’s interest, we can find concrete date.

I would love to meet a few Rustacean (however that word is pronounced :slight_smile: ) in person!


Update: A date had been set for November 13, 7 pm. Details here: http://www.meetup.com/Rust-Rhein-Main/events/225850710/

I’ll be there if I can make it. However, I don’t have time on Mondays and Tuesdays, so I hope it’ll be on another day.

If you like, I can give a talk about Rust (intro), clippy, our benchmarksgame entries, or whatever you folks are interested in.


#3

The location is available on all days during that week, so I think we can work something out (especially since you’re willing to give a talk :slight_smile: ).

That would be great! Let’s work out the details once we get a general sense of who’s coming.


#4

I’m very interested in attending and quite flexible w.r.t. time and day. I don’t think I have anything to give a talk about, but if something occurs to me I may do it.


#5

I’m also interested in attending and Darmstadt is very convenient for me, so I’ll probably be there (if it’s not on a Thursday) :smiley:


#6

I’m interested as well.


#7

I’m also interested (mainly in listening, just starting with Rust…)


#8

Thanks for your replies, everyone! There seems to be a lot of interest, which is awesome :smile:

I’ve set up a Doodle here: http://doodle.com/poll/8strav9n8yay5yif

Please pick the dates that work for you. I’d like to finalize the date within the next few days, if possible.


#9

There’s also a group on meetup.com now: I’ve set up a group on meetup.com: http://www.meetup.com/Rust-Rhein-Main/

Feel free to join and RSVP!


#10

Just started with Rust, but would definitely be interested


#11

I’m also very interested but coming from Düsseldorf,
May it be possible to participate via Hangout / Skype / …?


#12

We have a reasonably fast internet connection at the location, but no conference call infrastructure that I’m aware of. We could use my laptop’s built-in camera and microphone, but I doubt this will work very well.

If someone has equipment they want to set up on location, I’m willing to help out, but I won’t take this on myself, sorry.


#13

I tried this the last time at the Cologne meetup. It worked, but not well. That said, perhaps we want to record the talks (if someone has the equipment)?


#14

I’m not such a huge fan of recording of meetups. It’s a greater hassle then most people believe and I don’t see huge gains coming out of it.

(which reminds me that I still have the talks from the 1.0 party to cut and release…)


#15

I agree. Just put the slides online and be done with it. :slight_smile:


#16

That reminds me: If anyone want to create a website for a Rust meetup, feel free to clone http://rustaceans.cologne/. It’s hosted on Github Pages and the code is here. All you need to do is adjust the _config.yml and add your own events as files in _posts.

Thank you everyone for your feedback. The date has been set to Friday, November 13 at 7 pm. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of you there :smile:
