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
