Hi together! Also read @nikomatsakis blog post and became curious
So, how can/could I ideally start to contribute?
What type of contributions are you interested in making?
Well, I read @nikomatsakis post yesterday - I have a strong background in CS/coding (former PostDoc) but also in managing multilateral research projects as a principal investigator (so not the whole project as such but specific workpackages); honestly, I would like to contribute on the coding side but I also can take care of management duties (as mentioned in @nikomatsakis ); but I think for the former it is yet way too early
also, I gotta run now but will reply asap!
and thanks for replying
Also, I left academia a couple months ago and am now looking for a new side project next to my daily job
@Philipp Zech See this narrow https://rust-lang.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/131828-t-compiler/topic/learning.20WG @nikomatsakis started it to discuss learning/training help. Like you, I asked the same question. :)
In terms of code contributions, you can take a look at the active working groups and pick one that you're interested in, then post in the relevant stream to find some tasks involving that.
@Amanjeev Sethi thanks a lot! So I guess you also just start out?
@davidtwco thanks a lot!
yea like a day old :)
Haha, same here :wink:
