This is a quick reminder that there will be a GNOME hackfest and Chicago LUG meeting this coming Saturday at PS:One (3519 N. Elston Ave, Chicago) from 12 noon to 5 pm. Chris Webber (who also wrote this awesome blog post you should read) will be doing an Intro to Emacs and I'll be talking about some of the APIs that are commonly used in GNOME applications.
This month we are going to be trying out a new approach to the hackfest portion: if you are looking for a project to work on or want to work with a group, we are going to be building Documents using JHBuild and fixing some bugs. Jim Campbell will be working on documentation for the application. If you want to get a head start by building beforehand, I've written a short wiki with some build instructions. Let me know how it can be improved or if you run into issues. If you have something else you are working on then of course you should bring it and hack with us....this is basically designed to provide some structure for people who want it.
Thanks to the GNOME Foundation for food sponsorship and to PS:One for letting us use the space. See you then!
