Hack for edutainment, funducation.

New Year, New Hack.

2014, and every good person's New Year's Resolution is to improve their coding skills, right? WLHN is here to help you. Join us for a friendly evening of geek++ coding.

As usual, the schedule is:

6pm onwards - Doors open. Arrive, chat, order food.
7:15pm - Kickoff. Discuss tonight's hack, form teams.
7:30pm - Hack!
9:00pm - Show & tell

But until then, Merry Christmas!

    Brilliant fun, I'm getting the hang of working in unknown languages now :-)

    With a tiny bit of post-match tidying, here's (one of) the Clojure team's code:

    Really, really sorry but I'm going to have to bail as well. Inconveniently-timed work stuff, sorry! Will be back next month with twice the enthusiasm (unless Dominic's Haskell's talk happens first)

    • Kris J.

      Sorry not to see you Tom - it was a fun one. Hope work didn't keep you too long. :-)

    I'm going to have to bail yet again I'm afraid... Have been struck down by lurgy. The gods don't want me to hack it seems :/

    January 14, 2014

    • Kris J.

      Very disappointing - you know how seriously we take our Pete-count!

      You should see it as an opportunity to do some bio hacking!

    Sadly I won't be able to make tonight - as penance I promise to do a talk on Haskell (that is if anyone wants one)

    January 14, 2014

    • Kris J.

      Ooh, yes, I want one. I think the New Year is good chance to push for more regular talk nights. Lemme see if I can get a good venue...

    Hi, I'm new to meetups and not quite sure how it all works.
    I've done some web development in c# but now mostly hack away at deployment stuff.
    Is it a bit late for me to join in?

      Thanks Kris, Would I need a laptop with a dev environment? I don't have one on me today unfortunately!

      January 14, 2014

    • Mat

      Not a problem - we usually share a laptop between the team ☺

    Ahh sounds awesome! I can't do Tuesdays though :( Have fun!

    January 9, 2014

    • Kris J.

      Shame! We do flit between Tuesday & Thursday, so maybe you'll be able to join us soon. :-}

  • Adam A.

    So sad I can't make it tonight. Please make another night soon!

    • Kris J.

      Ohnoes! February will be there for you. :-}

    Depending on the exercise this evening, would anyone like to hack some XQuery?

    January 14, 2014

    • Kris J.

      I really want to see XQuery in action, but I don't think I'm ready to be on the inaugural team. :-)
