Title : Hackers Delight – The Weekender
Date : Starts Friday Evening 5th August through to 7th August!
Location : Haverhill Days-Inn Hotel
Sponsored by Days-Inn Haverhill
We will have the run of the public area of the hotel which includes two function rooms, the main reception and possibly several other rooms. Hotel staff will be available to help and are very enthusiastic about the event. It’s a nice new building with good facilities. Checkout the pictures on their website.
Places Available : Strictly Limited to 60 Places
Idea : A get together of like-minded geeks, techs, nerds, coders, electronics wizards, writers, photographers, videographers, bloggers and general enthusiasts.
Why : To have fun, socialise, enjoy the good company of others but most importantly … do stuff … actual stuff that benefits the museum, creates a community and gives everyone a sense of playing an important part in the creation of a museum.
Format : 2 full days of tech at the hotel – lots of tables set-up for lots of projects. Projects will be listed on the website and people can sign-up to a specific project(s) – Email addresses will be shared between people on a project for pre-planning. Evenings will involve good food and drink, maybe a big screen film and general fun! – We hope the feel of the event will be similar to the old demoscene events of the early nineties …
Tours of the museum as it currently stands in Haverhill will be run throughout the two days in small groups. The museum is only 5 minutes from the Hotel.
