Hack the Tower - LSug May 2014 hack day

hackthetower.co.uk is 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.

Note: This hack day is also being run in conjunction with the London Java Community - only sign up at one meetup event please!

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.

Note: Registration for this event closes the Monday before the date of the event, so we can manually add your names to the visitor list.

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 26th 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

1.30pm onwards - Keep on hacking until you have had enough
