Harvard's Mark I computer

Hacking Days was held from 1-3 August at the One Laptop per Child offices at Kendall Square in Cambridge, at the corner of MIT's campus. It was a chance to meet the MediaWiki developers and Wikimedia technical staff, hear technical presentations, discuss various tech issues, and do some relaxed hacking.

Hacking Days was participatory only and geared towards active developers. We can't stress this enough: we want to ensure an extremely high signal-to-noise ratio for the developers. While we're not quite prepared to make Hacking Days an invite-only event, we discourage attendance by passive or non-technical participants (and encourage you to enjoy Boston in the summertime instead :-)
