I am so pumped that the subcontinent is having not one, but three release parties! (And an additional regular event two weeks from now)1
Quick introduction: I’m Manish, a student in Mumbai (currently in Hyderabad for the summer). I’ve organized or spoken at events in Mumbai, Pune, and Kolkata. I contribute to Servo and these days Rust itself.
Given that India (I assume this also applies to Bangladesh since I’ve not heard otherwise) does not yet have many serious Rust contributors, I’m structuring the event at Bangalore as an intro to the language (starting off with the reasons why other languages are inadequate and the philosophy of Rust, moving on to basic usage), followed up by a long Q&A session and discussion, then lightning talks by attendees, and finally deep dives into certain aspects of the language depending on the audience. I might shuffle the order later.
This plan might work for you, depending on the audience and speaker (you might want to cut down on the lightning talks and deep dives if you think that’s not going to work).
You can find slide decks for Rust on the Internet easily enough (make sure the code isn’t outdated!). I have mine here and one that just focuses on memory management here. I usually don’t use all the slides depending on how I’m planning the talk. You will probably want to reduce the slides too. Check for errors in the code; I have yet to check for any rust upgrade bugs and will be doing so later this week.
I also recommend contacting Gaurab Patra and Avik Pal (also Reps). They’re from West Bengal, and are also very interested in Rust. They may know people in Bengal/Bangladesh (I don’t know what the visa/travel/time situation is so people from Bengal may not work out) or themselves be interested in helping out for the event.
@erickt can probably give additional input here on how to organize the event
1. If anyone’s interested, the events are in Bangalore (conducted by me) and Pune (conducted by Rohan Prinja) next weekend, and there’s another one planned for in Hyderabad the weekend after. I’m slightly sad that my home city isn’t getting in on this action ; but if you’re from Mumbai I do plan to try and hold regular Rust events once I’m back.
