About

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

ZuriHac will be held in March at the Google office in Zurich. It is open to all -- you do not have to be a Haskell guru to attend. 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, some talks, good food, and, of course, fun!

When

A weekend (Friday-Sunday) in March; yet to be decided. One of

  • March 5-7,
  • March 12-14,
  • March 19-21, or
  • March 26-28.

Send an email to johan.tibell+zurihac@gmail.com listing the dates that work for you!

Where

We will be in the TechTalk area of the Google office.

Equipment

You should bring a laptop with wireless (802.11). The room has whiteboards and a projector for any discussions or should anyone wish to give a talk.

Travel

Getting to Zurich

Intra-city Transportation

The train and tram stop closest to the Google office is Bahnhof Enge. You can take tram 5, 6, 7, 13, or S-Bahn S2 to get there.

From the Airport

Take S-Bahn S2 directly to Bahnhof Enge and walk from there. Alternatively, take any S-Bahn that goes to the main train station (Zurich HB) and take tram 6, 7, or 13 to Bahnhof Enge.
