How to Rustacean

πŸ’– Be kind and considerate

Building Rust is hard enough without being disrespectful to one another. You don't have to agree, but you do have to be kind and considerate.

✨ Bring joy to the user

Our top goal is for Rust users to be productive and empowered. We want people to love using Rust and, if they so choose, to love participating in its community.

πŸ‘‹ Show up

Bring your expertise and be willing to argue for what you think is right.

πŸ”­ Recognize others' knowledge

Nobody has a monopoly on good ideas. We are always looking for opportunities to improve our designs and seeking input from those with experience and expertise.

πŸ” Start somewhere

Finding the perfect design requires iteration. Think big but start small; don't be afraid to change course as you learn more.

βœ… Follow through

Say what you will do, do what you say, and speak up if you know you can’t (it’s ok).

🀝 Pay it forward

Project members recognize exceptional potential, intentionally develop new members, and take their coaching role seriously.

🎁 Trust and delegate

Empowering others means being willing to let them make decisions in the way that they see best.
