[Report] Near Ankara Meeting

Hello everyone,
I opened a proposal for the Ankara/Istanbul meeting.
[Here is the Proposal link] [Approved] Near Ankara-İstanbul Meeting.
Ankara meeting happened.

+30 engineering students attended the Near Ankara Meeting. Many investors attended
the event.
A few of friends could not attend the meeting due to snowy weather conditions.

A senior instructor in Rust programming language couldn’t came at the event because of the exam week. But we did a google meet with him.
In the Ankara Meeting, Near ecosystem, working mechanism of Near, job opportunities and educational activities were explained.
After the presentations , we made future plans with the university students
We talked to them about bringing their projects on other platforms to the Near ecosystem. We told them how to do it.
I explained the education models of Near University to university students. Some of our friends stated that they wanted to participate.

With the Senior Rust Instracture, which we did a google meeting, a plan was made to prepare a training content in Turkish. Planning will be presented to you approximately 1 month later. Let me talk briefly about the content.
Rust Education Topics:
Variable Identification.
Variable Types.
If else, While loop,
Databases in Rust programming language.
Ownership and Borrowing.
Designing with canvas in Rust
Desing Patterns (Iterator-Strategy-Traits-Generics-Closure…)
Making a few Basic Games.
Binary Search App

I think that the education model to be made will be many times better than the Global. Because the education to be given in Turkey will be a step-by-step education by starting the language of Rust programs from scratch.
We learned that several universities teach Blockchain courses. We will give a training to these universities about the Near ecosystem and Web.3.0 as a guest with Google meet.
We were invited to conferences held at universities.
