afterwards. This gives a days rest after a week's conferences, or CUFP
 
for the diehards, on the Thursday.
 
 
An alternative might be to run the Hackathon in parallel with IFL (or
 
ICFP), but this might result in some people who want to go not being
 
able to make much of it.
 
 
Hopefully this table will help us pick a date. Please only use initials
 
or something similarly small (and unique) to avoid the table becoming too wide.

Location

The Hackathon will be integrated with the university summer campus.

This will give us all the infrastructure (room, Internet, etc) at minimal hassle.

Potential topics for a group hack

Add ideas here for which you think hacking together as a group (rather than individually) would be beneficial.

  • Building tests that give 100% code coverage for package base.
  • Lots of Cabal hacking still to be done
  • Bindings for <your favourite C library>
  • Haskell library for <your favourite task>

Other things:

  • bytestring 1.0
  • bit layer on Data.Binary 1.0
  • Data.ByteString.Parallel
  • libxml
  • bytestring parsec
  • combine strictcheck and quickcheck once and for all
