Hackergarten is a craftmen's workshop, classroom, a laboratory, a social circle, a writing group, a playground, and an artist's studio. Our goal is to create something that others can use; whether it be working software, improved documentation, or better educational materials. Our intent is to end each meeting with a patch or similar contribution submitted to an open and public project. Membership is open to anyone willing to contribution their time.
What to Expect - You'll meet some great people, write some great code, and contribute directly to the Groovy community. Expect to leave Hackergarten knowing a Groovy framework or project a lot better, knowing how to create and submit a patch to an open source project, and meeting some new friends. There is no better way to learn about the GR8 technologies than to spend a few hours coding side by side with the project leaders and members
What to Bring - Bring yourself. If you have one, bring a laptop. Expect to pair program. If you don't have a laptop then someone else will.
Our History - Hackergarten meets once a month in Basel Switzerland at the Canoo Engineering AG offices. In the past we have written the Gradle Announce Plugin for version 0.9, and three plugins for the Griffon framework. Let's see what we can create in Copenhagen!
