Agenda Proposal for HackPar

Agenda proposals

JB: I suggest the following formats

  • T=Talk (Practical Code Knowledge): One person gives informative overview and points to relevant source code, followed/interrupted by time slots to look up and read the code.
  • Brainstorm: One person presents ideas (slides, black/white board, ???) about future features and development, and is chairing a discussion round afterwards. After discussion, results have to be fixed in keywords, within 5 minutes.
  • Pair Programming: groups of 2 read and write code, focus on one particular aspect
  • Snapshot: <5 minute for reporting results of hacking sessions to the group
