The Islandoracon Hackfest takes place May 15th, kicking off the conference. We want our Hackfest to rely on skills and experience that reflect the variety of our community, so it is being structured as a Hack/Doc, with equal emphasis placed on non-developer skills, such as metadata, testing, and writing documentation.
The Hackfest will run 9:00 - 5:00 PM and is happening at the Mills Library at McMaster University. Breakfast, lunch, and lots of coffee and tea will be provided. There will be prizes, learning, and a great opportunity to work with people in the Islandora community that you may not have collaborated with before.
You can register for the hackfest here (it's a drop-down option at $49).
And give us additional information to help develop teams and projects here.
Big thanks go to the Islandora Collaboration Group for modelling this approach and helping us to bring it to Islandoracon.
If you have a suggestion for a Hackfest Project or would like to comment and suggest and the overall goals, please add it to this brainstorming document.
