Hello all,

I hope this finds you well and that you have not been too adversely affected by

The last message sent to this mailing list was six months ago, incidentally
_not_ about COVID-19, but just a cancellation of the February iteration as it
had had few signups and practically no advertising. Then the Danish government
decided to shut Denmark down and this group basically went into hiatus.

So now: I've received a few e-mails asking if this community is dead, and
instead of answering on behalf of the group, I'd rather ask if anyone would be
interested in another meetup here in 2020?

We will *of course* be putting up safety guidelines and implement a limit on
attendees so we can all have a good hack night without concerns for our health.

Let me know what you think.

All the best,
-- Thomas

Hello again,

Since I wrote the previous message asking if there's any interest in another
meetup, I got a few replies that, yes, there's interest :-) thanks to everyone
that replied.

It was also suggested several times that we should make this meet-up virtual. We
can either host it on Jitsi [0] or consider a solution described here [1]. If
you have any suggestions on better ways to do this, I'm all ears.

I do still want to allow people to show up in person if they want to, but I'll
cap it to maybe 10 people. (I might be persuaded to change my mind on this

There's one thing we need: Speakers and talks. Do you want to give a talk?  If
so, please reach out and we'll add your talk to the agenda. The structure used
to be:

	18.15-19.00: Talk 1 [AVAILABLE]

	19.00-19.15: Quick break for pizza

	19.15-20.00: Talk 2 [AVAILABLE]

	20.00-22.00: Socialising

which I think we can stick to, but it could be changed.

It does mean that if you want to attend just the talks, you have to be online
for ~2 hours, which can be a lot (especially if you're already in virtual
meetings for parts of the day). So if you don't want to talk for 45mins, that's
fine, we can schedule it for a shorter time and just update the agenda

So: Open call for talks! Topics can be anything, a deep dive into the compiler,
a weird little side-project you're working on or an anecdotal story from your
dealings with Rust.

Stay safe and all the best!
