Invitation draft

Title: Live Coding

Our next meetup will be on **Wednesday, March 6, 2019** at 19:15!
This time around we'll do some live-coding in a group with one (alternating) coder.

Generally we'll focus on small simple tasks; porting small scripts, code katas,
AdventOfCode, Project Euler, …
Feel free to suggest your own tasks at the meetup.

This meetup will have an explicit focus on being beginner friendly.
We'll try to explain everything we write and answer questions.

**[You can register here](https://www.meetup.com/RustCologne/events/vnwndpyzfbjb/)**.

We are looking forward to seeing you. ☺

Yours,
Florian

The meetup will likely be held in German, we will however reevaluate this at the beginning of the evening and may switch to English if needed.

Did we already settle for a date for the next meetup?
Also, I could ask around if anyone wants to present if you like.

Well, it's the first Wednesday each month so people can plan ahead, unless we have a reason to choose another date (including "Let's switch it up once in a while"). I'm not entirely sure if Ash Wednesday qualifies as a reason, we'd have to pick some Monday then.
Presentations would be very welcome. Otherwise I don't really have any ideas right now besides the Open Space default. And honestly I'm a bit reluctant to announce that since interest has been relatively low the last few times we tried it.

Just asking because the date in the ToDo above is still Wednesday 2019-02-06 😉

Otherwise I don't really have any ideas right now besides the Open Space default.

How about we port some Go/Python tool to Rust?

E.g. this code: https://github.com/schollz/howmanypeoplearearound/blob/master/howmanypeoplearearound/analysis.py

Or some code katas / a task from AdventOfCode?

Another idea: I need a tool which sets environment variables whenever I leave/enter a directory. The scope of this tool is small enough so that we can write it in two hours and it's easy to extend (e.g adding support for running arbitrary code). Maybe that's something we could build.

Oh, got it. That was just me mistyping the month though.

I think writng/porting some code sounds like a good idea. I'll write and post an announcement after work or over lunch.
