When: Friday 22th of July 2016 - Sunday 24th of July 2016
Where: Google, 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.



End of July 2016, the Zurich Haskell Meetup group will organize ZuriHac 2016, a three day Haskell Hackathon hosted at the Google offices.

This is the fifth Haskell Hackathon in Zurich. The previous three were ZuriHac2015, 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!

In addition to more advanced topics we also had introductory material for beginners last year. We'll try to continue with this tradition this year - so please stay tuned and check ZuriHac2016#Talks for more details. There are going to be mentors for beginners on site again who you can directly approach during the whole event with any Haskell-related question that might pop up.



Google Switzerland hosts the Hackathon.

Venue notice

Visitors are not allowed to take any photos in the venue. No distribution of any Google work-related information visible inside the building. Visitors should always have a visitor sticker visible. Guests can not be left unattended.

Here is the list of participants who have signed up for ZuriHac 2016 and have chosen their name to be listed there.



Zurich, Switzerland

Here is a map with map with all important locations.

To learn more about the city, please see the Wikipedia and Wikitravel articles.

See here for public transport in the Zurich area.

A note on day tickets:

Day tickets in Zurich run for 24 hours and can be used on all forms of transport, bus, train, tram or ship.

If you arrive via airplane, please note that the airport is outside of the zone 10, which only covers the city of Zurich itself. Since zone 10 counts double, you will need a ticket for 3 zones then.

You can buy tickets from the ticket machines.


We recommend the following accommodation options. Please note that although accommodations around langstrasse tend to be cheap that area is usually very loud at night especially during weekends.






See the projects page.
