1 About

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

This event will be held one weekend in April 2014. 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, some talks, good food, and, of course, fun!

4 Location

4.1 Getting to NYC

4.1.1 Air

The closest major airports are John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Newark International Airport (EWR). All are accessible by public transportation - train, bus, shuttles.

4.1.2 Train

Take Amtrak to Penn Station, which is located in Midtown Manhattan.

4.1.3 Car

5 Talks

If you'd be interested in giving a short (15-20 minute) talk, put your name and the subject of your talk on the talks page page. There will be a projector and blackboard available.

6 Preparations

6.1 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 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.
