Community

The Rust programming language has many qualities, but Rust’s greatest strength is the community of people who come together to make working in Rust a rewarding experience.

Stay up to date with the Rust community!

Chat platforms

Development of Rust, and general chatter happens on several chat platforms. Check out general channels and more on the Rust Discord server, or check out the teams page to find where specific teams meet.

Events

Find a local meetup or conference

There are more than 90 Meetups and several conferences worldwide in over 35 countries. Rustaceans meet periodically in Rust User Groups. They are a great introduction to the community and a great way to learn and socialize with other people with a similar interest. Meetings are usually informal and open to everyone.

Run your own event

As Rust grows, we’re excited to help folks start their own local events. From hack and learns, to meetups, to conferences, the Rust Events Team is ready to help support you.

Registering your event helps us to keep track of our community efforts and allows us to connect you to speakers or other members in your area.
