The 2nd day of the BOINC workshop will be a "hackfest", in which we divide into groups and get something useful done. Possible activities include:
- design something
- write code
- get existing software to work
- write or improve documentation.
Each group will have a coordinator, who will define the goals and prepare resources.
Workshop attendees: please register for one or more hackfest groups by editing this page. If you don't see a group that interests you, create one.
If you don't participate in a group, you'll have nothing to do on the 2nd day of the workshop.
