A good way of getting to know a new programming language is... writing some code. So although there are some good IRC bouncers, like ZNC, we want to write another one just for learning.

But why an IRC bouncer? Because it is not rocket science, but it implies network communication (acting as client and as server at the same time), handling concurrent connections... in a few words: it sounds fun.

During this Hack Week we will not be ambitious: apart from learning Rust, we will be learning quite some things about IRC, so getting the basic pieces in place will be more than enough.

We can think of adding some stuff later, like database-based storage, full text search, support for plugins, and even a JSON/HTTP interface. But, for now, let's start low.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
