This page details the planning of Inkscape's 2016 hackfest.

Other pages: Hackfest2016 Topics, Hackfest2016 Attendees. Old: Hackfest2016 Location, Hackfest2015.

Description

A hackfest! We will work on Inkscape bugs, new features, and packaging as well as website issues; in fact anything that can benefit from developers and users being physically in the same space.

Date

April 11th through 13th just before the Libre Graphics meeting (April 15th-18th).

Venue

The Hackfest venue will be in the Evans Room at Devonshire Hall, University of Leeds. It is located in the Hyde Park area of Leeds. Address as follows:

Devonshire Hall
Cumberland Road
Leeds
LS6 2EQ

A map of the venue is available online.

It is a traditional "Oxbridge style" stone-built hall and our meeting room will accommodate 10 delegates.

Catering

A buffet lunch will be provided each day. There will also be an unlimited supply of tea, coffee and biscuits. Sugar, milk and soy milk will be provided.

Facilities

  • Wireless networking
  • UK mains power (remember to bring your own socket adapters if you're

coming from outside the UK!!)

  • Data projector & screen
  • Flipchart and pens

Nearby amenities

There are a few pubs, bars, cafes and coffee shops 5 minutes walk away from the venue if we want a change of scenery. There is also a small convenience store.

The venue is located on the Woodhouse Ridge nature trail if you want to step out for some fresh air.

Local contact

Alex Valavanis is the local coordinator for the event, and lives within walking distance of the venue. Send him a message on the developers' list if you get stuck! He will also be free on the Sunday evening before the Hackfest if anyone would like to meet for food/drink in Leeds City Centre.

Attendance

Anybody interested in Inkscape is welcome to attend. Funding is available for travel expenses based on past contributions to Inkscape. See the Hackfest2016 Attendees page for more details.

Schedule

A schedule will be developed based on input from attendees and the Inkscape community. See the Hackfest2016 Topics page for further details.
