For three days before LGM 2015, Inkscape developers will be getting together, face-to-face, in Toronto. The Inkscape Hackfest provides an opportunity for developers who normally collaborate online to get together, talk, and solve problems.
As they put it, “Being together in one room also allows us to work on things that are harder to do on-line: designing a new plugin/extension system, teaming up to squash particularly nasty bugs, authoring better user documentation, and planning where to take Inkscape development in the future.”
More details about the Hackfest are available on the Inkscape website, and dates and locations will be published here as they’re available. The Inkscape Hackfest is one of several off-track events taking place around LGM 2015.
