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 - 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 the wiki page.

The HackFest will take place on the weekend of November 6./7. 2010 in Hamburg. We look forward to meet you there, stay tuned for further announcements around programme and sponsoring!
To register yourself, just drop a short note to and we'll follow up with further information soon.

Faithfully, your HackFest organizers

Eike, Florian & Thorsten
