Twelve days ago, we emailed you about a particular event... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The 5th Haskell Hackathon April 17 - 19, 2009 Utrecht, The Netherlands ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We have some updated information for you. If you don't want to read the details, then the important points are: * Hotel or hostel accommodation may be hard to come by, so book your room now! * Check out the website for lots of useful information. As I mentioned before, you can find out more about the Hackathon here: http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac5 The site is a wealth of useful information gratefully provided by the Utrecht organizing team. If you haven't seen it recently, check again. In particular, however, we'd like to inform you of some newly obtained information. We unknowingly scheduled the Hackathon on the same weekend as a popular record and CD fair. http://www.recordplanet.nl/ So, not only do you get the chance to hack on projects involving your favorite purely functional programming language, you also have the opportunity to visit "the most impressive record fair of the world." However, this does have some drawbacks... Rooms in hotels and hostels in Utrecht are often notoriously difficult to come by. It's already a crowded city sometimes with too few places to stay (esp. if you want cheap). Therefore, if you've decided to join us or have already registered, we highly recommend booking a room at your earliest convenience. (If you haven't decided to visit Utrecht, then you should hurry up and agree to it already!) For this purpose, we have updated the main Hac5 page with information about accommodations. http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac5#Accommodation We also have a Google map with information about places to stay and transportation. http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac5#Map And finally, don't forget that you can use either the Attendees page, the Hackathon mailing list, or the IRC channel to communicate with other (potential) attendees or the organizers about sharing rooms, finding a place, or anything else. http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac5/Attendees http://haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/hackathon #haskell-hac5 (on freenode) Good luck and happy hacking! == Organizers == Andres Löh, Utrecht University (UU) José Pedro Magalhães, UU Sean Leather, UU Eelco Lempsink, UU + Tupil Chris Eidhof, UU + Tupil ... and more ...
