Hey everyone! My name is Jake and I am currently in college studying computer science and taking a course about compilers. While I have not used it for a ton of projects, I have always enjoyed writing Rust when I do. I am hoping I can hang around here and get some perspective on how production compilers are run and maybe contribute here and there and improve my skills!

Hi Jake! If you want to contribute to the rust compiler, or just want to know how it works internally, the rustc guide is a good starting point. There are still some missing chapters though. I don't know which parts of a compiler you are most interested in (parser, type checking, codegen, ...), but you can find easy issues at https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues?q=is%3Aissue+label:E-easy. There is also the E-mentor label for issues where there is a specific person willing to answer any questions. Even if the E-mentor label is not added, you can still ask questions though. When you have picked an issue, you may want to comment @rustbot claim to notify others that you are already working on it. Good luck!
