Dear Rustaceans,

our next Meetup will be on Wednesday 2023-08-09, 19:15 CEST.

This time, we’ll help the basic-computer-games project to translate some very old games into Rust. We’ll come up with a reasonable pre-selection, but feel free to pick any game you find approachable. Build a team or code alone - it’s your choice. Those games were meant to teach programming to newbies, so very basic knowledge to Rust will be sufficient.

The main challenge (and fun!) will be the culture clash between old BASIC spaghetti code and modern idiomatic Rust.

To participate, it is recommended to bring some notebook with a pre-installed rust toolchain.

As usual, you can enjoy some drinks, meet nice people and discuss about Rust.

You can register here.

We are looking forward to seeing you. :-)

Yours, Florian and Kai

The meetup will likely be held in German, we will however reevaluate this at the beginning of the evening and may switch to English if needed.

COVID-19 measures: We have restricted the maximum number of participants to ensure social distancing is possible. Accordingly we need to know how many people will attend the meetup. Please make sure to register and, in case you are no longer able to attend, cancel your registration. Feel free to privately send us a message if you think that more safety measures are required.

Location: Chaos Computer Club Cologne (c4) e.V.
