VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network Message Board › Vancouver Eclipse Hackathon November 13
Please join us for the 2nd annual Eclipse hackathon on Tuesday, November 13, starting 5:30 pm. This is a great opportunity to learn about how open source works, and to make a meaningful contribution to a project. Moreover, if you love to program, it is more fun with friends and beer (food and drink will be provided by our sponsors).
Last year, we had lots of fun and hacked away on some Eclipse projects. In the end, we had 5 contributions that eventually made it into an Eclipse project.
Some of the projects that will be hackable this year:
* Mylyn (task and application lifecycle management): http://eclipse.org/my...
* Groovy-Eclipse (Eclipse tooling for Groovy): http://groovy.codehau...
* Orion (Cloud-based IDE): http://eclipse.org/or...
(And potentially more...if you want to feature your project, just ask one of the organizers.)
For each of these projects, there will be experts and project committers available to help you choose where and how to hack.
