Hi, Lane!
This is Lareina from China.
I saw your post from a rust community group and really like it.
It’s quite helpful for new comers to develop a big picture of this field.
Many ppl are so eager to learn but have no clue to start.
I am wondering wether I could translate this series into Chinese and I will keep your name and intro at the very beginning.
