I’ve been thinking about what other kinds of events we could do at the Boston Meetup beyond the “people talking at a podium” model. So far, we’ve been offering some tutorials, which has been reasonably successful, but I’m curious what other kinds of events have proven successful.
I was contemplating some kind of “hack night”, though I wasn’t sure what was the best way to organize it. I could imagine trying to assembling a list of issues (either on Rust itself or perhaps community projects) and trying to fix them.
I’d also like to find a way for people to come with their own projects. I flirted with the idea of an “office hours” sort of thing, where people can just come with projects they are working on and get help. The idea would be that the more experienced Rust coders would sort of wander around answering questions, primarily. Not sure if this really makes any sense.
Anyway, I’m mostly coming hat in hand here, I’d love some advice on what kinds of events to organize, what has worked for other people, etc. Thanks!
