On May 10th, I attended my first ever Rust conference, RustNL 2023. I reached there the night before. My talk was the 3rd one in the morning.
The title of my talk was Using Rust to write Python modules, and my main plan was to inform developers in the crowd to think about python developers as their API/library users. I demoed Tumpa to showcase what can be achieved to help the final end users.
The next 2 talks after mine also had Python in the theme. You should check out all the talks from the conference.
I also managed to meet Mara Bos and get a copy of the book signed. Thank you so much.
I found the conference very tightly organized. The venue being on top of a library and centrally located was also very useful. The funniest incident was to find milk in the lunch menu, that was a first for me.
I also managed to meet some friends whom I only knew from Internet and met other Fedora friends after around 8 years.
I am hoping to be able to participate next year too.
