Hey there, kind Rusticians.
The big day is almost here. Rust 1.0 is going to be released on 5/15, and that’s a tremendous accomplishment for our amazing worldwide community. So what better time to have a worldwide party? If you organize Rust meetups, consider scheduling one for launch day!
We’ll be distributing a new Rust t-shirt at these meetups. The supply will not be enough to fill demand so event organizers will have to decide how to distribute them equitably. SF for example may do a raffle, or otherwise hold some contest. Due to the logistics of shipping stuff we need to coordinate. If you are hosting a launch meetup please contact me to confirm and provide 1) a shipping address, 2) typical attendance, 3) special requests about sizes, etc. You may either post here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I need this information next week.
Oh, and don’t fret if you don’t get one of the shirts: we’ll make them available for purchase online for those who don’t get one at a meetup.
I already have confirmations from SF, London and Toronto and have heard from a few more groups that have been contacted privately. As more events are confirmed I will provide updates and links to registration.
Let’s make this an unforgettable 1.0!
