Revision as of 22:45, 14 July 2009
(29)-30 August 2009
The Haskell Hackathon is an international, grassroots collaborative coding festival with a simple focus: build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.
Hac 7 will be held on 30 August
- IRC channel: #haskell-hackathon (freenode)
- Mailing list: email@example.com
30 August 2009.
If there is enough interest for some hacking on 29 August, we will look around for some local pubs to work in.
The RCPE - Rooms 4 and 5. See ICFP_2009_Local_Arrangements
Note that there may be some interest for renting a flat to share, especially for those who may be attending the ICFP. Let us know if you're interested!
8.1 What to bring
- A laptop
- Wireless card if necessary. There will be wireless network access. Ethernet access will probably not be available. If you really need ethernet access, please contact the organizers.
- Mobile phone
8.2 Before you arrive
- Pick out a couple of projects to work on and familiarise yourself with them, or bring your own project(s) to work on. See the projects page for a list of projects people plan to work on. If you plan to work on your own project, be sure to list it on the projects page and set up a public repository if you don't already have one, so that other people can help hack on your project.
- Install an up to date Haskell toolchain: at least ghc (preferably 6.10.*) and cabal-install. If you don't already have these installed (or need to install from scratch on the laptop you're bringing), the easiest way is probably to install the Haskell Platform.
