The Rust Latam Conf

Rust Latam Conference is the Latin America's leading event for and by the Rust movement, and one of Rust community's largest annual networking opportunities. This weekend conference of interactive sessions, hands-on activities, and engaging talks brings together 200+ passionate advocates, developers and enthusiasts of the Rust Programming Language from around the world. This March, the people and ideas in the Rust Latin America community will leap off the screen to learn, discuss, debate and address Rust in person. Our first annual Rust Latam Conference is happening in Montevideo.

In March, we’ll have that same fiery spirit from local gatherings. We’ll also have the people and resources to make a big impact. A two-day conference — workshop and speaker series — with dozens of experts and beginners means we can advance thinking on how you and your team can use Rust features to create a wide range of new software applications, such as game engines, operating systems, file systems, browser components and simulation engines for virtual reality. We can forge new partnerships, we can train tomorrow's programmers and we can fuel the community building across the Latin American countries.


Dozens of experts and beginners, which means we can have a lot of progress thinking on how you and your team can use Rust.


A shared goal is to connect people making Rust the best programming language and community.


Rust Latam Conf is just the start. For this first year, we hope to leave Montevideo feeling inspired and committed.


We move toward a more open and inclusive community to fuel our main mission, the Rust Programming Language better for everyone.
