ApacheCon North America 2014 Conference Hackathons

This year, hackathons will take place throughout the conference, overlapping conference sessions. This gives attendees plenty of time for testing, bug fixing, documentation, brainstorming, design and more. Four rooms have been reserved throughout the conference for hackathons.

If your project requires more time, or wants a dedicated day to themselves afterwards, fill out this form to arrange for a dedicated room + day on the Thursday or Friday.

Hackathon Information

Hackathons will take place every day, in parallel with the main conference. Lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided throughout.

Anyone and any project with an idea for a hackathon session should propose it below. Once there's a bit of momentum, promote it to a specific slot and bag your room!

When you arrive at the Westin (Confluence Ballroom Foyer), a bulletin board will display each hackathon location and time. If you've already signed up for a hackathon, you can head straight to your room and get started! If you don't have a specific project in mind, you can consult the board to find likely suspects based on your interests and skills, then go and find the project and they'll help you get started.

Proposed Hackathons

If your project is thinking of hosting a hackathon session, or you think there's an interesting topic to be cover, please list it here. If you see a proposed session you'd like to attend, +1 it so that people know it's of interest! Once a session gets enough people interested, we'll promote to the confirmed list, and prepare a sign for the table so you can find it.

For hackathons without large levels of interest, we'll try to provide some space in the general room, and people can just get together on a more adhoc basis to work. Please post a sign if you do that though, so others can try to find you!
