We are very pleased to announce that in addition to the conference we will be hosting Hackergarten at our London event. For those not in the know Hackergarten gives you a chance to make a positive impact in an Open Source project of your choice!
Hackergartens are a great place to meet new people, have fun, and improve the lives of developers around the world one patch at a time; provided you're willing to bring your laptop and get your hands dirty. Write a plugin, a tutorial, a small feature, or a bug fix for a project that interests you alongside several open-source experts willing to share their knowledge.
These are just some of the experts that have participated in the past: Hans Dockter (Gradle Lead), Andres Almiray (Java Champion, Griffon Lead, and Groovy Committer), Stephen Chin (Java Champion, JavaFX and Android Expert), Hamlet D'Arcy (CodeNarc and Groovy Committer), Peter Gromov (IntelliJ IDEA guru).
Previous Hackergarten contributions have been sent to the following projects: Groovy, Grails, Griffon, Gradle, Spock, Arquillian, JBoss Forge, Intellij IDEA, ScalaFX and more. Come join us for fun and open source goodness.
Let your voice be heard!
Bring your laptop and enjoy the opportunity to rub shoulders with project team members.
