OpenOffice.org just finished their annual conference in Budapest, Hungary. One of the outcomes of the conference announced today is the need for developers to spend more time together to properly fix problems.

In light of this, OpenOffice.org decided to have a HackFest specifically targeted at developers. The idea here is for the developers to spend more time face to face working on the code. The OpenOfice.org HackFest is scheduled for November 5-7, 2010 in Hamburg. The location can be seen on Google Maps and Open Street Maps.

Below is a tentative program for the HackFest:

  • Friday night – Beer, fun and warm up
  • Saturday morning – Introductions and hands-on sessions
  • Saturday afternoon/night – Collective hacking and bug fixing
  • Sunday morning – Wrap-up, review and documentation


OpenOffice.org has a limited travel funding budget for those in need of help. In addition, there may be some couch space available at organizers’ residences.

For reasonably priced accommodations see “Sleeping in Hamburg” on OpenOffice.org’s wiki page. There will be further announcements concerning the program and sponsoring as they become available.

To register, send a note to hackfest@openoffice.org and you will be contacted with further information. For more information on OpenOffice.org’s first HackFest, check out their wiki.
