We're back in the Salesforce Tower!

This is the sixth Typelevel (http://typelevel.org/) hack day in conjunction with the London Scala User Group (http://www.meetup.com/london-scala/) and Hack The Tower! (http://hackthetower.co.uk/)

Join users of and contributors to Typelevel projects (http://typelevel.org/projects/) and Typelevel Scala (https://github.com/typelevel/scala) and learn how to put them to good use in your own projects and how to make them better for the whole Scala community!

At the August Typelevel hack day we had people working on the Scala compiler, SBT and Ensime, and experimenting with using Scala.Meta to preprocess Scala source code!

Please come and join us, and if there's anything you'd like to chat about beforehand head over to the gitter channel (https://gitter.im/typelevel/hack-the-tower).

hackthetower.co.uk (http://www.hackthetower.co.uk/) is a hack day for any and all developers to come and collaborate on projects or simply discover new technologies together and enhance their skills. Working together also helps draw from each others experiences and get more done.

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