Rain Of Rust – How we did it?

Standard

Growing up I was a tech geek, always kept myself updated with the latest ongoing in the language world. It always excited me to explore the tiny bits of these platforms and constantly kept myself updated with brushing my knowledge.

About 9 months ago I met Manish Goregaokar, who works in Mozilla as a Rust/Servo Contributor met me at Mozilla India meetup which was organized by Mozilla India team and I was one of the core team member organizing that event. He introduced me this programming language and gradually I became very fond of it, finding it very interesting and exciting to explore this language.

Eventually after spending some time, analyzing and exploring this programme, I discovered that masses including students, startups, developers are not completely aware, very few users actually being aware about Rust. Even after spending a quality time on this programming language, I still feel I have a whole new world to be discovered up in front of me. Simultaneously I thought it would be wise to educate users regarding Rust language. I seeked help from my mentors,friends and staff from Mozilla in setting up a campaign to spread awareness about Rust. This is how we came up with Rain Of Rust campaigns.

Why Mozilla throws an annual Maker Party?

Mozilla believes the web is a global public resource that’s integral to modern life: it shapes how we learn, how we connect and how we communicate. But many of us don’t understand its basic mechanics or what it means to be a citizen of the web. That’s why we’re so passionate about teaching web literacy through hands-on learning and making. Our goal is to help people move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open, accessible and ours.

The main motto of maker party is “LEARN BY TEACHING“.

The best way to learn the web is to teach it. Hosting a Maker Party is not only personally rewarding, it contributes to the greater goal of increasing web literacy for everyone, everywhere in the world.
We throw the Maker Party for 3 days, 30th July to 1st Aug.
