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 Java, Groovy, Scala or Clojure apps, experiment with OpenJDK 8, get to grips with Git & Github, trying out one of the NoSQL databases like MongoDB or Neo4j or make some some robots dance, there are plenty of interesting things 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. (
