Hackfest: Boston/USA, RedHat Boston Office, 26-30 March 2018


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.

The timing of the hackfest will be next to the Software Freedom Day conference held at MIT.


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 RedHat's office at 300 A Street. which is located in the harbour district, a walkable distance from the very center of town.

RedHat's office is also a short walk from South Station, one of the main MBTA mass transit stops.


To be added.


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