Hackfest 2003

Seen at usr/lib/info
You are all cordially invited to participate in the Access 2003 Hackfest, the second incarnation of what proved last year to be an exciting new highlight of an always exceptional conference.

This year's Hackfest brings a new format: the entire day (October 1, 2003) before the beginning of the main conference track will be devoted to Hackfest activities, with two entire computer labs rented nearby for twelve hours just for the occasion. Also, we're hoping to bring a broader contingent of folks into the event, including as many non-technical people as possible. There will be plenty of hacker-types around, too, but all through last year's event participants wished more people with primary responsibilities in reference, cataloging, and administrative roles (rather than systems) were present. Like last year, hackfest participants will present their projects during a session on the last day of the conference. So come one, come all!
