The Hackergarten is the ideal place to meet new people, have fun and improve the lives of developers around the world “one patch at a time”. You will need to bring your laptop and be prepared to get your hands dirty by coding. Write a plugin, documentation, add a feature or bring bug fix on an open source project that interests you … all this alongside open source experts willing to share their knowledge.
This is your chance to contribute to open source projects you use. There are no presentations, Hackergarten is a coming together of committed developers to code together. This is an opportunity to get involved in open source and contributing to the enhancement of a project. Bring your laptop and ideas; everyone is welcome.
