You know that language you've heard about? The one you fancy giving a try, but haven't got 'round to? This West London Hack Night Special is for you! We'll be doing the usual hack night with one big twist: No-one can use a language they know anything about.

Yes, we'll have an ultra-simple challenge, and your job is to go in completely blind and hack a solution in a language you've never used before, in 90 minutes.

As usual we're upstairs in the Crown & Anchor & the schedule is:

18:00 - Doors open. Arrive, chat, order food.

19:15 - Kickoff. Choose tonight's hack, form teams.

19:30 - Hack, Hack, Hack!

21:00 - Show & Tell.

Personally I'm toying with either Go or Erlang, but as long as you have no idea how to program in it, you can choose it. If JavaScript or C are foreign countries to you, now's the time to give them a spin.

It'll be a great chance to finally kick the tires of a language that's got you curious, or just to stretch yourself and see how agile your brain is feeling. Oh, and if you're new to hack nights, this is a perfect chance to get started - everyone will be a beginner tonight...

See you there,
Kris
