ZuriHac 2015 is in preparation. Registration is not yet open. Thank you for your understanding.

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.



On the last weekend of May 2015 the Zurich HaskellerZ Meetup group will organize ZuriHac 2015, a three day Haskell Hackathon hosted at the Google offices. This is the fourth Haskell Hackathon in Zurich. The previous three were ZuriHac2014, 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!

Note that this event is open to any experience level, from beginners to gurus. In fact, one of the goals is to bring beginners in contact with experts so that the former can get a quick start in the Haskell community.



Google Switzerland hosts the Hackathon.
