[size=150]Hackfest: Boston/USA, RedHat Boston Office, 26-30 March 2018[/size]

A hackfest! We will work on Inkscape bugs, new features, and packaging as well as website issues; in fact anything that can benefit from developers and users being physically in the same space. The timing of the hackfest will be next to the Software Freedom Day conference held at MIT.

The hackfest will take place at RedHat's office at 300 A Street. which is located in the harbour district, a walkable distance from the very center of town. RedHat's office is also a short walk from South Station, one of the main MBTA mass transit stops.

Less than a month until event time, guess it's not too soon getting pushy about the marketing... openclipart hadn't replied so uploaded the banner anyway here. Will have to upload remixes making it stay on the carousel though :/.

A review of Day 1 at Hackfest has been posted to the development mailing list.  I've asked for permission to post it in full into forums.  But until that permission comes through, you can read the message in the archives:  https://sourceforge.net/p/inkscape/mailman/message/36277359/

And here's a video of Day 1 Debrief:

A message from developer Alex Valvanis, explaining his work at Hackfest:

https://sourceforge.net/p/inkscape/mailman/message/36280278/

(It's written so that ordinary users like me, can understand.)

Thanks Alex!

Also note that the 2nd reply to that same email, gives Martin Owens' overview of his work at Hackfest!

Thanks Martin!

And thanks again to all the hackers in Boston!!

On the mailing list, I found a Day 4 Summary video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqQI2Y1PR38&feature=youtu.be

Since Day 1 was posted above, I haven't seen a Day 2 or 3 yet.  Will post in order, if I find them (if they exist?).

Edit
Aahh, it seems that there were not any summaries for days 2 and 3 -- just a lot of heavy duty coding on one day, and outreach on the other day!

Even though Hackfest is over, there was another message posted to the mailing list, during hackfest, which users may find interesting to read, which I only just now am getting around to reading.  For those who might be interested:
