Hackfest: Pasadena, California


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 hackfest will take place March 4th through March 6th, which is before the 2019 Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) which takes place from March 7th through 10th.


Pasadena is a city 16 km to the northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Pasadena can be reached from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) by bus/metro in about an hour.

  • An easy way to get there is take the FlyLAX bus to the downtown rail station and then take the Gold line to Pasadena

The hackfest will take place at Pasadena City College.


We've decided to not use the catering from the college, but will bring some snacks and enjoy nearby lunch places on Colorado.


* Wireless networking
* US type ...
