Location Rome, Italy
Date November 24th to 25th, 2018
Join us at [RustFest](https://rome.rustfest.eu/), the community conference dedicated to the Rust programming language! Over the weekend of November 24-25 we'll gather in Rome to talk Rust, its ecosystem and community. RustFest consists of two main parts: a "Conference day", where you can learn new and encouraging things about Rust from excellent speakers and a one-day "Workshop day", where you get to play, work and explore Rust together with other people guided by knowledgeable mentors. The presentations cover a wide range of subjects and audiences, from beginner talks to case studies and advanced Rust topics. Customarily there is also an (optional, free) "impl days" event after the weekend, dedicated to joint hacking and diving deeper into a project. [We believe in diversity](https://rome.rustfest.eu/diversity/) and would like to provide support to people of many different backgrounds to experience RustFest. This includes, but is not limited to, people who belong to one or more of the following groups: people of color, women, nonbinary and gender non-conforming people, disabled people, people with mental health issues, and LGBTQIA+ people.
