Details

Note: This hack day is also being run in conjunction with the London Java Community (http://www.meetup.com/Londonjavacommunity/) - only sign up at one meetup event please!

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 Play2, AKKA, Scala and Swing apps, get to grips with Git & Github, trying out one NoSQL databases like Neo4j or make some some robots dance, there are plenty of interesting things that I am sure you want to work on.

Please note the Salesforce offices in London are now in the Heron Tower (where some of series 3 of Sherlock Homes was filmed)

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.
