Moreover, It is a platform where students get a chance to polish their skills and explore their potential.

Being Mozillian, I believed that this event has a good potential to spread Mozilla mission so Mozilla Reps have supported the event by giving a talk on Rust & WebVR which are the most emerging technologies nowadays.

Me(Mehul Patel) & Shagufta Methwani are the speaker from Mozilla and gave a talk on Rust & WebVR respectively.

Started my talk by introducing them to Rust and why I’m using Rust? I believe, Rust is new enough that you can write useful stuff that would have already existed in other languages. It also gives a relatively familiar tool to the modern C++ developers, but in the much more consistent and reliable ways.

I believe, new system programming language solves a lot of common system programming bugs. Moreover here we have Cargo: Rust Package manager which helps to Improve your toolkit. And, Its best for Self-learning & always have fun to do.

Please read the full story here, this may explain you, why you should use Rust?

Then, we move ahead did some practicals where I have shown them small demos from our Rust Kits.
