Hackers hacking on Saturday [1]

The London hack weekend on Nov 2011 is a past event. If you were there, thanks for coming, and thanks for all the hacking! If your weren't there, we will give you another chance some time in 2012.

It took place 26th and 27th in London, and as ever, it was a smorgasbord of hard-core development, tutorials and hanging around in pubs!

Thanks to MapQuest for hosting us at their London offices and supplying us with pizza fuel. Thanks to User:Matt for organising this (Matt works for MapQuest, and is also on the Engineering Working Group)

Hack Weekend?

An OpenStreetMap "hack weekend" is a meet-up where we bring along laptops to an office space and spend the weekend doing some technical work to improve OpenStreetMap. This may be development of the "core" components, the editors, or any other side projects and pet projects we fancy hacking on. OpenStreetMap has development tasks sprouting from it in all directions. There's work to do in almost any programming language, as well as tasks like documentation, and even some non-technical graphics design and translation tasks.

We mostly take a fairly unstructured free-form format. People turn up and start beavering away on something, or they turn up and see what they can help with. However we can also run more structured workshops if there is demand
