Hackfest: Boston/USA, MIT SIBP, 26-30 March 2018

SUBJECT TO CHANGE: We may move the hackfest to RedHat's offices.


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.


Boston is well connected being half way between Europe and the West of the USA. It is modern, accessible city that many Inkscape developers have said they can get to. There are direct flights to/from most major EU cities.


The hackfest will take place at ~Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (32 Vassar St, Cambridge, MA 02139)~. This is a Student class room environment located at MIT. The SIBP group support Free Software projects and will be the host for Libre Planet 2018.

Take MBTA Red line to Kendel/MIT.

If location changed: RedHat's offices are at 300 A Street (accessible from South Station).


To be decided.


From Monday the 26th of March to Friday the 30th of March, 9am - 6pm. We'll dine informally in the evenings.
