An open source hackathon
Bring your laptop and work on an open source software project. You can program, write documentation, make fun of people through IRC, discover and report usability problems, and more.
The point of this hackathon is to help you get your hands dirty working on a real project. To help with that, we'll have Asheesh Laroia from OpenHatch and other community members in attendance. If you don't know what you want to work on, or you get stuck, you can ask for help, ideas, or advice.
This is a perfect opportunity to work on your problem-solving skills, and learn to collaborate with other open source programmers.
