ZuriHac 2014:

When: Friday 6 June 2014 - Sunday 8 June 2014
Hours: 09:00 ~ 20:00
Where: Erudify, Zurich, Switzerland

Switzerland has its own power sockets. We can't provide converters for everybody so make sure to bring one along. Do note that the Europlug will fit in a Swiss power socket. There's an electronics shop Fust Center Eschenmoser very near our office where you can buy converters.



On the first weekend of June 2014 the Zurich HaskellerZ Meetup group will organize ZuriHac 2014, a three day Haskell Hackathon hosted at the Erudify offices. This is the third Haskell Hackathon in Zurich. The previous two were ZuriHac2013 and ZuriHac2010.

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

This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow haskellers in real life, find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and tools or even start new ones!



Erudify will host the Hackathon.


Google Switzerland is providing financial support
