Then people move on to their tracks. The track leads had a meeting with their mentees and discussed their plans of 2k17 and how they are going to achieve those metrics.
In the Second Day, Karthic Keyan gave an intro about Campus Clubs’. We all separated to tracks WebVR, Add-ons, Rust, L10N and Web compat and QA. I’m in RUST track. Vigneshwer is my track lead. We learnt about Rust and understand the basic knowledge about rust. Installation of Rust in windows makes some problem. It requires C++ Build Tools for proper compiling of Rust in windows. Installation in Mac and Linux doesn’t make any problem.
After Lunch, Gautham Raj discussed about Community issues and solution were provided. People in Rust track given our details to join in Rustaceans Community. We understand some concept of array, enumeration, looping, tuples, vector,.. and goes on. The sample codes where executed.
