What do we look for when considering whether to include something in This Week in Rust?

This Week in Rust is intended to highlight the incredible work of the Rust Community.

What we are generally looking for includes:

  • how-to intros (and advanced deep dives) into Rust concepts and areas
  • Rust walkthroughs that explain concepts in different ways than well known resources like the Rust book, Rustlings, and Rust by Example
  • updates on tooling when in long form or framed as a tutorial (for more details, see what we are not looking for below)
  • Rust-related podcast episodes
  • Rust-related screenshots and videos
  • Rust meetup recordings
  • Rust meetup announcements
  • Presenter slide decks on Rust
  • Observations and thoughts on Rust and the Rust community
  • Calls for participation in Rust open source projects
  • Rust job announcements
  • and more!

What we are generally NOT looking for includes:

  • Anything that violates the Rust Community Code of Conduct
  • Rants or anything degrading to any part or member of the Community. Rather than submitting an article about what is wrong with something, we would much rather you write something that explains how you'd make it better.
  • Duplicates of recent posts (even with the wording changed slightly)
  • Links to crates or GitHub repos without some sort of context. We would much rather you submit a blog post introducing your project and how a Rust user might use it (and what it would help them do) and/or what you learned about Rust in the process of writing the project.
  • Anything behind a paywall (this includes includes Medium's paid article mechanism)
  • Anything that requires information to be shared/captured (like an email address) in order to access

These are meant to be guidelines, if you are ever not sure about whether something should be included please feel free to open a pull request anyway and we can discuss it!

The editors of This Week in Rust do reserve the right to make the decision about whether to include something or not, but we intend to do so in a way that is as transparent as possible.

How I get PR lists:

git log --author=bors --since='MM/DD/YYYY 12:00PM' --until='MM/DD/YYYY 12:00PM' --pretty=oneline > ~/entropy/twir.txt
# edit in vim to get rid of everything but PR number, copy into clipboard
for pr in $(xsel -ob); do firefox$pr; sleep 0.07; done
# wait a long time...
# write TWIR

Alternatively use GitHub search:
