Yeah it was a very nice experience and quite the confidence booster.
The Rust community in IRC (#rust-beginners on Mozilla servers) are also very welcoming, I have frequented them on occasion with questions, when trying to get my head around some of the stuff I am experimenting with when trying to learn Rust.
One of the important takeaways is also on how you write and structure your code for consumption and contribution. The lower the barrier, the higher the success rate I guess.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
