Events

We don’t overthink too much in this area. We have so many reasons to celebrate, and so many topics to talk about that not one week can pass without some kind of Mistral event. One could say that our frequent get-togethers are the main reason our size never trumps our ‘wolf pack’ spirit.

External events

This is how we classify all events open to the external audience. We always promote such events through social media channels and invite all interested to register prior to attending. This type of event is a little less frequent but definitely worthwhile. If you have an idea for a meetup or something, we’re also up for co-hosting, so don’t be a stranger. Drop us a line via Contact page.

Behind the scenes: FvckUp Nights Sarajevo

Tuesday, 6PM

We are proudly co-hosting this meetup with the cool people of Fvckup Nights Sarajevo. There are numerous events that celebrate the success of a storyteller, but very few tell the story that preceded the success. The story of when they miserably failed, when it all went down the drain, and when absolutely nothing went its course. Hear about why these stories matter the most by registering via this link: https://bit.ly/37ni3bp

Note: This is a pre-event to FuckUp Nights Sarajevo Vol. 05 happening on the 2nd December in The Brew Co.

Internal events

Only for employees. We’ve decided to showcase some of our internal happenings so all interested in joining our crew can get a better insight into our affairs. Most of our internal events are non-mandatory, meaning everyone gets to choose which one they want to attend based on their preference. For more awesome features of Mistral life, check out our Perks page.

Rust – Packages, Crates, and Modules

01

July

Wednesday, 10AM

A key question when writing programs is scope: what names does the compiler know about at this location in the code? What functions am I allowed to call? What does this variable refer to? Rust has a number of features related to scopes. This is sometimes called “the module system,” but it encompasses more than just modules (Packages, Crates, and Modules). Amir Muminović will cover all of these concepts in the upcoming Practice Group session.
