General Information

During this month of September, Crystal Space programmers will gather in Barcelona, Spain, for a harsh time of coding. They all share a common interest in the development of Crystal Space, which is why the developers are meeting. This is made possible by the Spanish company GrupoIkusnet, who is helping out with some infrastructure (like power, food), and CSOA La fibra, a lively decorated squatted factory.

A hackfest (known as hackathons more commonly) is an event when programmers meet to do collaborative computer programming. These events are typically between several days and a week in length.


Amir Taaki, Seth Yastrov, Pablo Martin and others are present for entire duration.
