About

This is a "new Sugar coders hackfest" evening, where people can come to learn about making Activities - bring a project you want to work on, and we'll have people from the core Sugar team around to help, teach, answer questions, run impromptu tutorials, and make tools/patches as needed to ease the entry route for new coders.

Attendees

Sign up if you're coming, so we know how many to expect. Put a

  • Marco (on-site mentor)
  • Tomeu (on-site mentor)
  • Mchua (hackathon coordinator, working on Larry, a language-learning Activity)

To do

Let Mchua (mel at laptop dot org) know if you can help!

  • Get a location with wifi, projectors, and ready access to food (which probably means "order pizza, then ask everyone if they can chip in a few dollars when it comes).
  • make invitations and send them out
  • find some way to make nametags for everybody
  • make sure that the location gets set up (chairs, tables, etc.) and taken down/cleaned-up afterwards
  • send thank-you follow up emails after the event encouraging people to come to the rest of Sugarcamp
