I pinged Johannes to make sure it was ok to share this with the rest of the group. We are putting together a Hack Day in London. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you

Yahoo Developer Network (YDN) is thrilled to announce the upcoming Yahoo! Hack Europe: London on April 27-28, 2013 at Covent Garden in London.
This two-day hackathon brings together a wide range of engineers to come together to build out ideas they are passionate about in an atmosphere that inspires collaboration, learning and innovation using the world¹s top technologies from both YDN and tech partners. This will be YDN's third hack day in London. If you want to hack in an environment where you¹ll be both challenged and inspired, this is the place to be.
What it will not be is an ordinary hackathon.
In addition to the staples of swift wifi, tempting treats and sharp troubleshooters, Yahoo! Hack Europe: London will stage panel debates on emerging technology trends, host skills workshops ranging from tricks of the trade to geeky crafts, offer a variety of fun and engaging puzzles to stimulate your mind, and fuel your creativity with large-scale interactive games. If you want to hack in an environment where you¹ll be both challenged and inspired, this is the place to be.
What to expect:
Two full days of hacking, with plenty of food, drinks, snacks and caffeine
High-energy, informative speaking panels and live demos
Workshops taught by top devs to level-up your skill sets
Access to a buffet of technologies from around the web
Hacking with world-class developers
Top developer-led workshops and assistance to quickly help quash bugs
A playground of games and toys to interact, play and hack with
Prizes and surprises
All of our previous hack days have filled to capacity, and since there are only a limited number of slots available, we'll ask you to tell us a bit about yourself including your technical background to ensure all participants have the technical ability to build a hack. This will also help you find the brightest teammates to work with. We look forward to seeing you there!
Saturday, April 27 - Sunday April 28, 2013.
Covent Garden, London
