@Santiago Pastorino how is the state of docs wrt. the parser?
I think this https://rustc-dev-guide.rust-lang.org/the-parser.html is all we have
ok that's very high level
@Santiago Pastorino do you want a Q&A with me?
that would be great
what about a lecture? :smiley:
I could do a lecture... not sure what it involves wrt. wg-learning... I prepare some notes and talk for a while and show y'all some parts of the parser and you ask questions?
yeah, it's more like preparing a talk, recording it and have the group making a chapter out of that
it may also involve a q&a session that could happen async on zulip
@Santiago Pastorino ah so I record a talk alone?
I could I suppose write the chapter myself if that's more helpful
no no, usually what we do is a Zoom session or something like that
where you or somebody explain some things
then we can ask questions
and we write the chapter
if you want to write the chapter that totally works too :)
whatever is most helpful :slight_smile:
the most important result is to have chapters and a better rustc-dev-guide
so I'd say is better to have a chapter directly
but usually people don't have time for that and prefer to do a lecture or a q&a session or something like that
but if you can and want to do a chapter, we can keep asking questions and improving it async I'd say
and it takes less time to prepare a lecture? :upside_down:
I guess it depends :)
if we open an editor and out of what you remember you start talking about things without preparing I guess it may take less time
but if you prepare like a talk that's probably more work
I wonder if someone else writing it down may produce notes about things I wouldn't think to write down
like things I find obvious but others don't
so maybe a lecture would be best
yeah, I was going to say that too :)
this is one of the reasons to do a lecture
@centril just in case, should we schedule this? or do you want to take some time and then get back to us to schedule a date?
@Santiago Pastorino I'll think a bit re. what the lecture could contain and then I'll get back to you
seems great thanks!
@centril Thanks! Some thoughts regarding things you might include:
@centril the parser is an area of interest for me. If I can be of any help turning your expertise into documentation, please let me know. Happy to help.
