About

The Haskell Hackathon is an international, grassroots collaborative coding festival with a simple focus: build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

CamHac will be held from 12-14 August 2011, at Homerton College in Cambridge. As with previous Hackathons, all are welcome -- you do not have to be a Haskell guru. All you need is a basic knowledge of Haskell, a willingness to learn, and a project you're excited to help with (or a project of your own to work on).

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

  • IRC channel: #ghc on FreeNode

Registration

(details to follow)

The venue is limited to 50 people, and registration is first-come first-served, so register quickly to reserve your place!

Venue

We're in the Horobin Room of Homerton Conference Centre. It is about 20 minutes walk from the train station, and Cambridge town centre is about 30 minutes walk.

There will be WiFi access.

There will be a projector for giving talks/demos. We will probably reserve a part of the time for talks and demos.

Food

Tea and coffee will be supplied. We will have to go out to find lunch, but there are various places to eat and buy food at the Cambridge Leisure Park a few minutes walk towards Cambridge town centre. In the evening we will probably head towards the town where there are plenty of good restaurants.
