Eclipse DemoCamp New.jpg What is an Eclipse DemoCamp? What is a Hackathon? What is an Eclipse hackathon?

Another Hackathon

After the success of last year's Eclipse Hackathon, we will be hosting another hackathon. Yes. Another hackathon. We hope that all attendees will become Eclipse contributors by the end of the evening. Our goal is to provide enough small-ish bugs and feature requests such that all attendees can hack away and come up with a reasonable patch by the end of the evening. Attendees will break out into groups of 2 or 3 and get hands on support from a veteran of the project to help ensure that a patch can be completed.

So, bring your laptop and be ready to code!


Tasktop offices in downtown Vancouver (see photos)
