The hackfest is a informal gathering to learn more about the software development, make contributions to future enhancements and getting more involved in the Mahara community. Participants of the hackfest do not have to have programming skills. There are many other ways of contributing to the software that can be explored. Possible activities at the hackfest are:
work on new features
brainstorm feature enhancements
learn how to test new features in Mahara
get started with translating Mahara into other languages
The hackfest is an additional day to the 2-day conference and will be held at Catalyst IT. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops, but Catalyst can also provide a limited number of computers.
