Hack the Tower - hack day

Note: This hack day is also being run in conjunction with the London Java Community - you only need to sign up once :)

A hack day for any and all developers to come and collaborate on projects or simply discover new technologies together and enhance their skills.

Whether you want to build Play2, AKKA, Scala and Swing apps, get to grips with Git & Github, trying out one NoSQL databases like Neo4j or make some some robots dance, there are plenty of interesting things that I am sure you want to work on.

Please note the Salesforce offices in London are now in the Heron Tower

Based in the city of London near main transport links, its a great chance to discovering how to get the most out of new technology and practices. Working together helps developers tackle technical challenges and techniques that are common regardless of language (github pull requests, using NoSQL data source, managing deployment, etc). Working together also helps draw from each others experiences and get more done.

Rough Schedule 
You can get into the offices from 9.30am onwards and have some breakfast and coffee, relax and take in the stunning view from the 25th floor of the Heron Tower.

10.30am - Get together and discuss application ideas & things you want to try out. 
10.45am - Split into groups and get going 
1pm - Lunch time (sandwiches, quiche, fruit and drinks provided, requests taken) 
1.30pm onwards - Keep on hacking until you have had enough

Sign up 
Please include your your full name so I can organise a visitor pass for Heron Tower.

In total, there is space for around 50 developers on the day. Food & drink will be provided, thanks to our hosts Salesforce.com
