If you are a Magento Developer coming to Las Vegas for the Magento Imagine conference you are welcome to register for this Hackathon. We are anticipating reaching capacity early based on the number of people that have registered for the Imagine conference. Please sign up early if you can attend.
Who should attend?
Any experienced php developer who has some Magento experience should attend.
What is a Hackathon?
“A hackathon, a hacker neologism, is an event when programmers meet to do collaborative computer programming.” -Wikipedia
Why should you attend?
This is meant to be a fun event for developers to get together, enjoy food, drink and coding on those projects that are most interesting to you.
This will be something between a conference with workshops and a casual get together. During the day programming and presentations follow a schedule. In the evening it is time to relax, get a beer and meet other developers that are working with Magento.
The main point of a hackathon is to take your time and work on somehting that you have been meaning to get to or to solve problems that others may have and and might be covered up with a few dirty fixes or postponed to the next less busy day (which never comes). This is not meant to be a "bugfixing" session.
