The Hecklers
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference."

We had to postpone it last month, but it’s ON!

The full details behind the idea and planned execution can be found here (HackFest – Thanks For Sharing!), but to quote one of my favorite movies of all time, “Let me sum up”: this is an unofficial, un-sponsored-by-anyone virtual gathering of friends and soon-to-be-friends just pounding away on their Java code. JavaFX? Sure! Java SE or ME Embedded? Check. Another JVM language? Bring it! Join into a planned project (Hendrik Ebbers is cooking up something special for any who’d like to contribute to it) or BYOP – Bring Your Own Project. Whether you’re diving to new depths in a familiar area or tinkering with a new idea or API, it’s all fair game.

 

I plan to set up a Google Hangout and keep it open for the duration. Join in for as long (or as little) as you like! Here are the details:

 

Begins: 1200 (noon) UTC/GMT on Saturday, November 16th
Ends: 1200 (noon) UTC/GMT on Sunday, November 17th
Where: Google Hangouts

Calendar reminder and invite will be sent to all who want to join in the fun.

 

Please spread the word (it’s easy, just use the Share/Save button below), and let me know if you can attend, whether for a half hour or all 24! Just email me here to “sign up” and be kept in the loop of any updates, new news, or post-HackFest (subsequent HackFest(s)?) announcements. Looking forward to hearing from you (yes, YOU!) and hanging out, learning, growing, & sharing.

 

Keep that (Java) code flowing!
Mark
