Grace Hopper Celebration Codeathon for Humanity
The Codeathon at GHC2010 is intended to introduce participants to rapid development of FOSS applications in a collective coding setting. We expect participants with any level of familiarity with coding and with the specific tools used in Sahana Eden, so want to provide a range of options for projects. We also want to send out material that participants can review in advance, as there will be little time for training during the codeathon. Facilitators can receive more direct training and practice in advance.
The Codeathon and the Open Source Track at Grace Hopper were sponsored by the NSA. A big thank you to the NSA!
If you think we should do this again next year, please send feedback to stormy - at - gnome.org. Your feedback will help us have a great event next year and might help us secure funding.
