impl days are a hackfest with the goal of bringing the Rust ecosystem forward. They focus on helping out with base libraries, bringing Rust into new areas or new operating systems. But it’s also important to find, mix and match what’s currently there.
impl days happened at RustFest 2017 and have been traditional ever since. The name is a play on the
impl keyword of the Rust language.
impl days are traditionally open without a conference ticket and the same goes for Oxidize.
impl days are meant to be newcomer friendly and a good place to get in touch with projects or find new contributors.
impl days usally happen at a venue where people get together, but these are different.
impl days: Connecting People
impl days are slightly different, because everyone is around the globe. This means the
impl days are constructed around different principles:
- No one to stick around waiting
- Projects already have infrastructure
- Online interaction runs a high chance of missing each other
impl days document
One of the central points of
impl days is the main document. This document is a shared space for people to note down the projects they want to run.
The document can be found here: Oxidize main impl days document. The document requires signup to prevent spam and provide some tracking.
For an example of what such a document looks like, see last years document.
The intro session
There will be an intro session on Sunday morning 10:00 UTC. Projects described until then will be presented.
Publishing as a Project
If you want to start a project, improve an existing one, or just experiment with your hardware of choice, note down a section in the document. This section should include:
- What?: A good description of what you want to work on.
- Why?: Often, new people don’t understand the significance of a task. Help them.
- When?: Times you are available. Try to stretch that as much as possible, you don’t have to be around all the time.
- Platform: Where you want to work.
- Contact: A way to contact you when there’s interest. Make sure this is a contact with notifications on, e.g. some messenger that sends you notifications to the phone.
The last is very important to make sure you don’t have to monitor all the time and you will know if people show interest.
impl days moderators
impl days moderators will help in the process. They will help you write your project descriptions and help newcomers to be in touch. We can be found on the chat platform.
