LtU-Kiev Hackathon is a collaborative coding festival aimed towards building and improving Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

This event is also a get-together of functional programming enthusiasts. With this in mind, attendees are free to choose any programming language they like for their hacking.

LtU-Kiev Hackathon is open to all. You don't have to be a Haskell guru to attend. All you need is a project you are excited to help with or an individual project to work on.

Date and Venue

16-17 October 2010, 10 am to 6 pm.

The hackathon will be hosted by GlobalLogic and will be held in Kiev's GL-Club: Mykoly Grinchenka Str., 2/1 (map).


If you will be attending, please register. The space is limited (up to 30 attendees), so don't delay!

What to bring

  • A laptop with Wi-Fi
  • An extension cable (picture)


If you have a project that you want to work on at the Hackathon, please describe it here. This page is only meant for coordination, it does not impose anything.

If you are interested in one of these projects, add your name to the list of hackers under that project. If you have another project you want to hack on, please add it to the list.


Hackers: ADEpt

Adding tests to pathlib and fixing path-handling bugs reported by me


UNIX Shell scripts parser

I plan to conduct an introduction to the project for new and wannabe contributors at the beginning of the first day.

One of the topics will be Data-flow analysis, see this mail.

Hackers: Roman Cheplyaka


Hackers: jtootf


Going to check out some easy tickets.

Hackers: Oleg Smirnov, maybe ADEpt (not-so-easy tickets)


Hackers: Ivan Veselov


Hackers: rssh


`under' utility decodes binary DER data to textual S-expressions and/or encodes sexps back to DER. This C program is based on iteratees and is rather functional in this respect.

Plan is to extend existing functionality with pluggable codecs.

Hackers: vvv


nullfs is a set of FUSE filesystem drivers aiming to implement useful and simultaneously technically sound notions of /dev/null-alike directory. You can cast nullfs FUSE spell on almost any directory you like hence transforming it into /dev/nulldir.

There are 3 spells available: nul1fs, nulnfs and nullfs (in odrer from primitive to the most elaborate).

Hackers: xrgtn
