Hello All,

For those interested in the Voyager Hackfest Collaboration at EndUser, I
have created an  e-mail list to start planning and discussing it. To
subscribe to the list, send an email to [log in to unmask] with the
following request on the body:

    SUBSCRIBE VOYAGER-HACKFEST-L your-name

Just substitute, "your-name" with Your name, I.E.

Example message body:
   SUBSCRIBE VOYAGER-HACKFEST-L Edward Corrado

You do not need to be registered to the Hackfest to be on the e-mail list.
In fact we encourage anybody who works at a Voyager site who is interested
in the Hackfest to participate in the list whether or not they are
attending. However, if you are attending the Hackfest, please register to
the list. I should be able to get a list of e-mails for those who are
attending, but it is time delayed, so if you register yourself, it will be
more timely.

At last count (earlier this week) there was 13 people registered for the
Hackfest, so if you want to attend, you should register ASAP. After the
Hackfest fills up  (it is limited to 20 people), there will be a waiting
list.

Below is the initial announcement for the Hackfest for those who may have
missed it....

EndUser Voyager Hackfest Collaboration: Call for Participation

Hello Voyager Hackers,

New to EndUser in 2007 is a Voyager Hackfest. A Hackfest is when a group
of programmers and developers get together to work on a task. Hackfests
have been a popular occurrence at computer-related conferences in years
past and have been popularized in the library world by the Access
conference [1] held in Canada each year. The 2002 Access Hackfest was
described as a “collaborative effort to solve real world library
problems using freely available tools” [2]. While many hackfests are
competitions in which programmers compete against each other, the
EndUser Voyager Hackfest will follow the Access conference tradition of
collaboration.

The Hackfest will be three hours and will take place on Saturday, April
28 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon. The meeting room will have Internet
access. Participants must bring their own laptops if they wish to have
computer access during the Hackfest. Hackfest participants will be
required to be registered for EndUser 2007. Because of the size of the
room, the Hackfest is limited to 20 people. Anyone who registers after
the Hackfest is full will be placed on a waiting list

A mailing list will be set up soon where Hackfest participants and other
interested parties will be able to discuss the project(s) that will be
hacked on at EndUser. If you have any questions, please contact Edward
M. Corrado at [log in to unmask]

Please pass this notice on to anyone at your institution that you feel
may be interested in participating.

The Hackfest is session number is 73 on the EndUser 2007 website -

Sincerely,

Edward M. Corrado
