EclipseCon Committer Hackathon

At EclipseCon 2008, we are organizing a Committer Hackathon that will run in parallel to the conference program.

Never heard of hackathons? Wikipedia defines it this way:

A hackathon refers not simply to one time hacks, but to a specific time when many people come together to hack on what they want to, how they want to - with little to no restrictions on direction or goal of the programming.
For all the details and for a great FAQ that Jeff crafted up please see the EclipseCon Hackathon page.

Events like these that I have been involved in the past have been challenging, rewarding and FUN.

When you need an interrupt from the technical talks, I would encourage Eclipse committers to bring your laptops, ideas and talents to come do some hacking.

wondering how me and Adrian drinking beers and margaritas ended up being the "face" for the hackathon ;)
