Revision as of 15:01, 30 April 2013

June 7-9, 2013

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Contents

1 About

The Haskell Hackathon is an international, grassroots collaborative coding festival with a simple focus: build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

Hac φ will be held June 7-9, 2013 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. It is open to all -- you do not have to be a Haskell guru to attend. All you need is a basic knowledge of Haskell, a willingness to learn, and a project you're excited to help with (or a project of your own to work on).

There will be lots of hacking, some talks, good food, and, of course, fun!

2 Sponsors

Hac φ 2012 is sponsored by Jane St. Capital and MSR Cambridge, both active users of functional programming!

3 Registration

If you will be attending, please register. Registration is free, and open to everyone. If you like, you can also list yourself as an attendee. Then check out the projects page.

Registration closes Friday, May 24, 2013 at 1430 local time (local to you!).

4 When

June 7-9, 2013 from 2:30-8pm Friday, 9am-8pm Saturday, and 10am-5pm Sunday. There will probably be some talks Saturday afternoon.

Although the hackathon won't officially kick off until 2:30pm on Friday, you are welcome to arrive the evening of Thursday the 2nd or Friday morning if it makes for easier travel. If enough people are around and interested, some sort of activity could be arranged for Thursday evening and/or Friday morning.

5 Talks

If you'd be interested in giving a short (15-20 minute) talk, put your name and the subject of your talk on the talks page. There will be a projector and blackboard available.

6 Location

Check out the Google map for info on relevant locations.

6.1 Getting to Philadelphia

6.1.1 Air

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is the closest major airport.

6.1.2 Train

Take Amtrak to 30th Street Station (station code PHL), which is just a few blocks from Levine Hall; see the Google map.

6.1.3 Car

UPenn's admissions office has driving directions that take you right into the center of campus.

6.2 Intra-city Transportation

The Hackathon will be held in room 307 of Levine Hall. See Penn's searchable campus map for more on this location.

6.2.1 Without a car

  • SEPTA operates the trains, busses, and trolleys in Philadelphia. The fare is $2 per trip, exact change (so save up your $1s before you come). You can also get tokens (which are cheaper, and don't require exact change to buy) at most big stops. Their site is a little bit unfriendly; I recommend using the Trip Planner to find out what routes to take, then consult the route schedules to find out how often those lines run, so you know how flexible your trip will be.
  • There are about a dozen cab companies serving various parts of the city; Google will point the way. You will likely be within Center City and University City (sometimes called West Philadelphia) for the duration of your visit. Hailing cabs is also theoretically possible, but I would recommend giving the radio dispatcher a call if you want to take a cab.
  • Walking is always an option. Philadelphia is a very walkable city.

6.2.2 From the airport

  • There is a SEPTA Airport Express Train (R1) every half hour; the fare is $7 (pay after you get on the train). If coming directly to the hackathon, get off at University City station and walk a block west and a block north; otherwise, go one stop further to 30th Street Station to connect to other forms of transportation.
  • A cab from the airport to Center City or University City is about $30.
  • The PHL website has a list of rental car companies. UPenn's admissions office has driving directions that take you right into the center of campus.
  • Walking is probably not an option.

6.2.3 With a car

There is some parking on-campus, as well as street-parking for $1/hour. To help with interpreting the maps below, Levine Hall is located at 34th and Walnut.

The Google map also highlights the public parking locations near the hackathon; the fee is about $13/day.

While you're planning your route, keep in mind that while the city is laid out mostly in a grid, about half of the roads are one-way.

6.3 Accommodation

Attendees often stay at the Club Quarters hotel in Center City Philadelphia. There are some additional hotel suggestions here and in the "Hotels" section here. There may also be some local residents willing to accommodate a few attendees. See the attendees page for more info.

7 Map

Here is a Google map with relevant locations marked.

8 Preparations

8.1 Before you arrive

  • Pick out a couple of projects to work on and familiarise yourself with them, or bring your own project(s) to work on. See the projects page for a list of projects people plan to work on. If you plan to work on your own project, be sure to list it on the projects page and set up a public repository if you don't already have one, so that other people can help hack on your project.
  • Install an up to date Haskell toolchain: at least ghc and cabal-install. If you don't already have these installed (or need to install from scratch on the laptop you're bringing), the easiest way is probably to install the Haskell Platform.

9 Contact

For any questions or emergencies, you can always call Brent Yorgey at (215) 350-4532, Daniel Wagner at (650) 353-1788 or Chris Casinghino at (603) 860-5301.
