The Haskell Hackathon 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!



Provectus IT will host the Hackathon.

Odessa, Ukraine

To learn more about the city, please see the Wikipedia and Wikitravel articles.

Visa information

Citizens of most European countries do not need a visa to stay in Ukraine for less than 90 days. Check here if in doubt.

Also note that a visa is typically required for work-related visits. Since you may have a hard time explaining to officials that you've come to write software for free, you'd rather not mention this fact.

Getting there

Odessa International Airport (ODS) has daily direct connections from and to Kyiv, Vienna, Istanbul, Warsaw, Prague and Moscow.

Through these it is connected to the most of Europe with just one stop.

Getting around

The official hacking hours are 10am to 8pm on Friday, 9am to 8pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Please come before 11am on Friday. At 11am there will be projects introduction and discussion.


We'll go out for lunch at about 2pm each day. The main choices for lunch are:

Zharyu-Paryu (Жарю-Парю)
Uspenskaya, 28 (Успенская, 28)
A canteen. Relatively cheap — you can have lunch for about 35 UAH (3 EUR).
Gallo Cafe
Troitskaya, 26 (Троицкая, 26)
A bit more expensive. You can have a set meal for 67 UAH (6 EUR) or order from the menu.


Every evening after hacking we go to a pub (this is completely optional, of course).


There also will be a pre-party on Thursday evening, for those of you who arrive in Odessa by Thursday.

Location: Troubadour cafe (Zhukovskogo, 13) (map)
