4th Haskell Hackathon April 11-13, 2008 Gothenburg, Sweden


Sponsored by Credit Suisse and Galois.

This is a reminder to register for the 4th Haskell Hackathon.

The event will be held over 3 days, April 11-13, at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.


  • Lunches and at least one dinner for the Hackathon attendees will be provided through our generous sponsors Credit Suisse and Galois.
  • If you plan to start a new project on community.haskell.org, please request an account and project in advance, so as to save valuable Hackathon time. See http://community.haskell.org/admin/ for more details.

What it is

The plan is to hack on Haskell infrastructure, tools, libraries and compilers. To attend please register, and get ready to hack those lambdas!

Code to hack on:

  • Hackage
  • Cabal
  • Porting foreign libraries
  • Bug squashing
  • You decide!

Before you attend, do start thinking and familiarizing yourself with 1 or 2 projects you wish to work on, to ensure no wasted effort during the Hackathon. A list of possible projects is available on the website.


We ask that you register your interest. Follow the instructions on the registration page:


Once you've registered, do add your info to the attendees self-organizing page,


if you are looking to share costs, or meet up prior to the hackathon, with other attendees.

N.B. if you already expressed interest via the wiki, do confirm by registering `officially' anyway.
