Hackers hacking in DC

The first OSM hack weekend in the Washington DC area was on Feb 18 and 19th in Arlington, Virginia.

What got hacked

The biggest thing to come out of the hack weekend was that a bunch of us are working on an effort do some redesign of the website. Martijn has made some page redesigns, and we're working on larger features.

Also people worked on:

  • A prepackaged OSM Website VM
  • Shields
  • User stats
  • A data message bus system
  • A conflation plugin for JOSM

In other words, a lot came out of the weekend.
