When: 2016 August 6 - 7 (Saturday & Sunday)
Hours: 09:00 ~ 17:00
Where: LogMeIn Collab Space, 1061 Paulay Ede u. 12.


The Budapest Haskell User Group will once again hold a two day Haskell Hackathon in Budapest. This is the second the occasion (info about the first hackathon), and this time we will hold it in LogMeIn’s Budapest office. The event is an international, grassroots collaborative coding festival with a simple focus: build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Haskellers in real life, find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and tools or even start new ones!

This event is open to any experience level, from beginners to gurus. In fact, one of the goals is to bring beginners in contact with experts so that the former can get a quick start in the Haskell community. We will have a dedicated beginners' track, and there are going to be experienced haskellers on site whom you can directly approach during the whole event with any Haskell-related question that might pop up.

There will be lots of hacking, good food, and, of course, fun!
