Speck Hack Fest 2008
The Speck Hackfest is a hackfest for GNOME developers and contributors. It's a fantastic way to meet everyone and get involved. Unlike traditional conferences, the Speck Hackfest is all about getting developers together, getting things done and having fun. While there are some non-hacking sessions, they are geared heavily towards many-to-many, interactive discussion and planning, rather than one-to-many presentations.
The hackfest will be held at the TIS Innovation Park in Bolzano, an innovative and technological center in Bolzano and it will be organised by the TIS - Free Software Center. You can take a look at the video presentation of the city. It will end with the Free Software Conference, which will be on 14th November.
