We are pleased to announce our second developer Hackathon on September 26-29 at the University of Leipzig, Germany.
We will publish our first release candidate (RC1) of SlideWiki 2.0 at the end of September.During this Hackathon we finish remaining tasks, finalize features, and bundle a working release. Furthermore, we will organize a local testing group consisting of computer science students and research assistants that will test our latest work in order to gather feedback on features, our technology stack, and to suggest improvements.
Because one of our milestones is to have a stable release at the end of December 2016, we will discuss future developments, the organization of public Hackathons to built up a community of open-source developers, and the integration of the latest technology and tools into our work. We will have large time slots for both development and discussion to push development forward.
As most of us will stay 4 days in Leipzig, that is often considered as THE rising star of Germany, we will open up opportunities to visit some famous spots, like the second most modern Zoo in Europe, get inspired by some historic musicians like Bach or Bartholdy or to experience the outstanding beauty of one of the oldest trading cities in Germany. In order to discuss some off-topic subjects and to have some fun, we planned an after-work event in the lovely inner city of Leipzig.
