The EclipseCon 2014 Hackathon!


Note: This submission has been changed into a BoF session and added to the schedule! See it here.

The Hackathon starts on Tuesday evening, and may continue on Wednesday evening if there is interest in doing so.

Join forces with Eclipse project leads and committers to improve your favorite Eclipse project. Our goal for the evening is to convert all hackathon participants into Eclipse contributors. Experienced Eclipse committers and leads help you choose something to work on, answer your questions, and guide you through the contribution process. Some nicely scoped bugs to work on will be provided by project leads. Or you can go your own way and surprise us with something more exciting.

In order to get to hacking as quickly as possible, we hope that all participants will try to set up their dev environment before the hackathon starts (if you have trouble, don't worry...we're here to help). No prior hackathon or Eclipse plugin experience necessary (but Java or JavaScript knowledge required).

We are also looking for project leads and committers who are interested in showcasing their project. Please contact one of the organizers to be added to the list.

There will be prizes. There will be coding. There will be fun. Join us!

More information on the hackathon is available on the wiki.
