Hack Day


Another chance to hack with the London Scala user group (http://blog.jr0cket.co.uk/2012/10/london-scala-hackathon-powered-by-heroku.html) and the wider software development community.

Read about the HackTheTower event in February (http://blog.jr0cket.co.uk/2013/02/hack-tower-february-2013.html) to get a feel for the event.

Come along and create new apps or work on existing projects with other developers. Discover functional programming and other new stuff such as Play2 framework, MongoDB, Travis-CI, Neo4j & Heroku and get creative.

Help other lsug members build a new website (http://lsug.org/) to manage their community, so you can either join in with that project or build your own web application or service.
