Beginning of June 2018, theZürich Friends of Haskell association will organize ZuriHac 2018, a three day Haskell Hackathon hosted at the HSR Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil. This is the seventh Haskell Hackathon organized in Zürich and and the second one which is hosted at the HSR. A fantastic venue located right at lake Zürich and providing space for over 300 participants.
The Haskell Hackathon is a free (as in beer), international, grassroots collaborative coding festival whose goal is to expand the community and to build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about Haskell, meet fellow Haskellers in real life, find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and tools or even start new ones!
This event is open to any experience level, from beginners to gurus. In fact, one of the goals is to bring beginners in contact with experts so that the former can get a quick start in the Haskell community. This year, we will have a dedicated beginners' course, and going to be mentors on site whom you can directly approach during the whole event with any Haskell-related question you have.
