August 18 - Hack Day

Thu 8AM-5PM

Hypermedia Hacking : The ALPS Microblogging Challenge

For this hackday attendees are encouraged to explore the ALPS microblogging specification and create a client or server using their favourite language/framework. Attendees can bring along their clients and/or server to try and talk to other attendee's clients/servers.

There will also be an opportunity for authors of the clients and servers to do short demonstrations of their implementations. Hackday is an opportunity to write some code, read some code, test some code and learn a whole lot in the process and leave with a better understand of what does and does not work in the real world.

NOTE: All attendees who complete a working client or server will be awarded a Nerd Merit Badge!
