One of these days I should probably just put "lives here" into the file on cvs when it comes to hackathons in Berlin. My very first hackathon was b2k13 and I attended u2k15 as an emergency hackathon, on to number 3!
Landry Breuil (landry@) sent in our next report from the recent ports hackathon:
So.. p2k17.. and now i realize that my first hackathon was p2k7, 10 years ago, time flies !
The next p2k17 report comes from Anthony J. Bentley (bentley@):
As not a local Berliner, but one who lives nearby, it would be a shame to not to come to a Hackathon in Berlin. Unfortunately I only could make it the first three days.
The latest hackathon report to come in today came from Christian Weisgerber (naddy@):
“You're German, you must know Berlin, right?” “Uh, here's the list of European capital cities I live geographically closer to: Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Paris, Bern, (Vaduz), Prague.”
Without any splashy projects in the pipeline for p2k17, I went to work on what can be described as janitorial tasks.
I had a very productive hackathon and worked on a lot of different areas.
I started out p2k17 by removing ruby 1.8, 2.1, and 2.2 from the ports tree, along with some ruby 1.8-specific ports. I also removed some old ruby database drivers that are no longer used by anything in the tree.
There is plenty to do in the OpenBSD project, but not very much if you can not put a sustained effort of concentrating on a task for at least 4 hours straight for a period of at least a week. That is why, for us time-impaired people, hackathons are a great way of feeling involved in the project as a full-time employee putting in a lot of extra hours would.
First time in Berlin.
I've been to germany lots of time, but never to Berlin. I'm actually old enough that my first german foray happen before 1989.
It was interesting. Very wide city, with lots of spaces everywhere.
