Concordium has launched the DevX initiative to help developers in the Rust Ecosystem grow, according to a Concordium report.
Moreover, the initiative will offer a web platform and contribute code to crates that benefit the whole Rust ecosystem. Also, the initiative will host workshops, hackathons, game jams, and meetups to help people learn about Rust. The DevX approach is based on the principle of reciprocity.
Concordium Follows “first give, then get” Approach
Concordium is a blockchain that provides an integrated solution for protocol-level identity management and zero-knowledge proofs. In growing its new Rust-based community, it will strictly follow the “first give, then get” approach.
The announcement adds,
We affirm that to “get”, you must “give” first. Concordium desires to strengthen the Rust community and support the programming languages growth and adoption, which is also a part of Concordium’s commercial success.
In light of that, a Concordium representative mentioned that they treat developers as artisans and ontological leaders. They also stated that Concordium support will include code, research, and community-based efforts.
The research will be curated by Professor Bas Spitters and his team from COBRA will participate in the Rust economy. They will mainly focus on the formal verification area. Mostly, research efforts will be based on Rust-written smart contract frameworks. This will be within the context of the projects ConCert and Hacspec.
Furthermore, they will release a detailed roadmap over the next few months. It will include all workshops and hackathons to help people learn about Rust. Recently, Concordium also introduced plans for a YouTube channel with Rust tutorials and recordings of Rust Interest Group gatherings.
