Hackathon Hamburg 2017 Mar
In this event you can meet with other interested developers to improve Eclipse projects. We expect you to know how to develop in Java. No previous Eclipse development knowledge is required but of course it is helpful if you know already about Eclipse development. We do Eclipse Hamburg Hackathons on a regular basis.
In this event we basically sit together can you can ask questions, see how other people work on Eclipse and find areas where you may want to contribute to Eclipse to improve your favorite framework or IDE feature.
This is what we typically do:
- work on the Eclipse source code
- test new features in the Eclipse IDE
- validate or open new Eclipse bug reports
If you are an Eclipse user, contributor or committer, we hope this event will be a lot of fun for you. Attendees can hack away with the help of experiences Eclipse developers and can help to improve the Eclipse platform and its projects.
So, bring your laptop and be ready to see some code!
