Hackathon Chicago, Nov 10-12, 2006
Hackathon-Attendees-HOWTO: Revision 26
This document is an attempt to gather suggestions and recommendations so that people coming to their first Hackathon so can more easily hit the ground running and have a better Hackathon experience in general.
A fair number of the Chicago Hackathon participants were attending their first such event. While hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves and felt like their time at the Hackathon was worthwhile, the impression I got was that a lot of folks could have had an easier time 'getting started', as it were.
Whether you're a hardened Hackathoner or someone who just attended your first Perl Foundation event, you surely have some tidbits of advice to share. Please contribute freely and edit ruthlessly.
