hackthetower.co.uk (http://www.hackthetower.co.uk/) is a hack day for any and all developers to come and collaborate on projects or discover new technologies together and enhance their skills. Bring your laptop and your desire to try things out & have fun!
Note: Registration for this event closes the Monday before the date of the event, so we have time to add your names to the visitor list :(
We are also co-hosting the Adopt Openjdk (https://java.net/projects/adoptopenjdk/pages/AdoptOpenJDK) hackday.
Come hack on the Java implementation that you use everyday!
* Improved OpenJDK (http://openjdk.java.net/) 9 test coverage
* OpenJDK Warnings cleanup
* Small Bugs Fixes
* The betterrev (https://bitbucket.org/adoptopenjdk/betterrev) project
If you're not familiar with the OpenJDK (http://openjdk.java.net/) codebase there will be people there to help you get started, including some from IBM who work on OpenJDK professionally.
You can get into the offices from around 9.45am onwards and have some breakfast and coffee, relax and take in the stunning view from the 26th & 27th floors of the Salesforce Tower (formerly known as 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, fruit and drinks provided, requests taken)
1.30pm onwards - Keep on hacking until you have had enough or want to go to the pub!
Please include a first and last name when prompted to (if its not on your meetup profile) so we can register you with building security, otherwise you may have to wait in reception for a long time.
Food & drink will be provided, thanks to our hosts Salesforce
