2020 Koha Hackfest in Marseille

2020 Hackfest Canceled

The 2020 Hackfest in Marseille, France was canceled this year due to COVID-19.

The Koha community is holding several Virtual Hackfests as an alternative option.

You can view the Koha Community Wiki Page with additional information:
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Virtual_Hackfest_2020.
There is also a Trello Board with ideas for the week. https://trello.com/b/8PHH9gJ2/virtual-hackfest2020bugzilla

Registration is Open!

Dates: March 23-27, 2020

Location: BibLibre office 108 rue Breteuil, 13006 MARSEILLE FRANCE

Registration: please send an email to Paul to register paul.poulain@biblibre.com

Some explanations for those who need them:

  • the hackfest is NOT a developer week. it's a week for anyone willing
    to contribute to Koha, whatever the kind of contribution (testing,
    documenting, ...)
  • the hackfest is free of charge (but you'll have to deal with your
    traveling costs, of course)
  • you can come for 5 days, or less. Don't come for 1 day, it's
    useless. coming for 2 days is very frustrating. Coming for 3 to 5
    days is perfect !
  • 40-45 ppl fit in our office. If we're more than this, we'll have to
    book an additional room [thanks to the company just next door] So
    register as soon as possible
  • there's no schedule, everyone comes with it's own ideas/goals/expectations
  • that's not a training session
  • if you need an official invitation, just ask by email
