We hold a hackathon about one Saturday or Sunday a month in the SIPB office. A hackathon is a great opportunity to get involved in a project or get people involved in your own. A recent hackathon, Hackasaurus Rex, drew over 50 people to the office and spawned several exciting new projects. In the past, we have had hackathons such as our Bug Squashathon, which was dedicated to squashing release-critical bugs in Debian. Sometimes we run also run Documentathons.
In general most hackathons are open to any project, and absolutely everyone is welcome to attend. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a member or prospective interested in running a hackathon, you should read some wisdom we have collected.
