Hackergarten at JavaOne (and Others Worldwide)

by guest blogger Andres Almiray

It's with great pleasure that I announce JavaOne will host a Hackergarten this year once more. That's right, you did read it well, the name sticks, we're no longer renaming it to CodeGarten like last time ;-)

At JavaOne 2014, the Hackergarten has a dedicated space at the Java Hub in JavaOne exhibit hall, Hilton Union Square. The space has power, a private Internet network, white boards, and seating for 16. Attendees need to bring their laptops. You may stay as long as they want, from less than an hour to most of the three days. The format remains the same as other Hackergartens. Participants will contribute to open source projects. 

The idea is to gather people around specific topics at the scheduled times. Topics range from Java SE, Java EE, JSRs, pretty much anything Java-related. Contributions can be production code, test cases, documentation, or simply a friendly chat in order to gather feedback. If you want to host a session (help people to work on an open source project), please contact me. The project page is here and will be updated as we fill out the schedule.

We are also running Hackergartens at other conferences. The following ones are already confirmed:

JCrete - Aug 25th (in English)

JavaZone - Sep 9th (in Norsk & English)

JMaghreb - Nov 6th (in French)

Codegarten at JavaOne!

At JavaOne 2013, you can contribute to your favorite open source projects at the Codegarten in the OTN Lounge. Join open source experts and write a plugin, a feature, or a bug fix for a project you care about. It is a great way to get involved with open source and learn how to make a difference for the projects you're passionate about. Bring your laptop and your creativity to the OTN Lounge from 10:30am to 4:00pm Monday to Wednesday. Open to everyone, whatever your background. 

"It's the opportunity for like-minded developers to come together and produce a piece of code, a patch, documentation, testcases or any other kind of contribution to an open source project of their choosing" explains Andres Almiray. 

Java Champion, Griffon Lead, and Groovy Committer Andres Almiray along with Java Evangelist, and JavaFX Expert Stephen Chin are organizing the Codegarten. The projects on their list are Griffon, Groovy, GroovyFX, Gradle, Asciidoctor and more. 

They have done it before at Devoxx, Jazoon and Gr8conf to name a few.
