OpenOffice.org Hackfest 2010
Dear OOo hackers,
the OOoCon just ended, and we realize how little time we can spend together face2face each year. To properly fix that problem, we hereby announce the next event around OpenOffice.org - a hackfest in Hamburg, specifically targeted to developers, to give all of us more face time & collectively work on the code.
The OOo Hackfest will take place over a weekend (starting Friday night with some opportunity to socialize, and ending Sunday noon), and a tentative program could look like this:
Friday night - beer & fun, warming up Saturday morning - Intro talks, Hands-on sessions Saturday afternoon/night - collective hacking, bug fixing Sunday morning - wrap-up, review, document
For those who are in need for a bursary, we have a limited travel funding budget available. For sleeping, couchsurfing at the organizers is available. Be aware that would be in an unheated loft, so bringing a sleeping mat and a good sleeping bag would be essential. For more comfortable reasonably priced acommodations see http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Sleeping_in_Hamburg
To give as many people as possible the opportunity to participate, we're offering two dates to select from. If you're interested, we ask you to log your preferred date(s) within one week here:
Putting your name & dates there is no obligation for coming, this is just a poll.
Faithfully, your hackfest organizers
Eike, Florian & Thorsten
