In some ways, a browser engine seems to have little in common with a web framework. But both are ambitious software projects, approached by large groups of diverse people trying and sometimes failing to cooperate, collaborate, and code together. This talk shares firsthand observations, collected over 3 years of working within the Rust and Servo teams at Mozilla as well as volunteering on the Rust Community Team, about what all developers can learn from Rust’s approaches to the universal challenges of code and community.
