We're thinking about running a Local HQ for next year's Gopher Gala, happening in January 22 to 24.
It is a 2 days long internationally distributed coding contest, where people, in teams of 1 to 4 members, work on an application mostly based in Go. Those chosen by the community and the expert judges chosen for the event, may win prizes.
Our new sponsor BigSEO kindly offered their offices to hold our Local HQ... Thank you so much! I want to thank you also Ivan Fraixedes for helping bringing such cool people to us!
We'll have the offices for us from 9 to 20, both Saturday and Sunday, though teams can keep hacking during the rest of the weekend, from any other place.
If you have a project or idea, you need to register it, but remember you can't code anything until Saturday, at 2 o'clock, local time.
Steps left are:
• Agree on the Friday meeting location.
• If you already have a project or idea, register it at Gopher Gala, and share here, so people can ask for joining. Remember 1 to 4 people per team. I also prepared a form to share these, which adds them to a spreadsheet, so others can see and think about joining.
• Find out some more sponsors to pay food and drinks. We can decide to put money in a common pool for drinks and some food, alternatively. Or anyone manage their food. Please, veggies, vegans, or anyone with allergies and so on, send me a message so I can count with that.
