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

BelHac will be held in November in "The Therminal" in Ghent, Belgium. 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, good beer, and, of course, fun!

You can register here.



  • Friday, 5th of November: 2pm - 7pm
  • Saturday, 6th of November: 10am - 6pm
  • Sunday, 7th of November: 10am - 6pm


  • Friday: short introduction, followed by hacking and sponsored food. There will also be a "Real World Haskell Crash Course" for unexperienced but interested people.
  • Saturday: Hacking!
  • Sunday: More hacking, and in the afternoon we will have a couple of (lightning) talks.
