Upcoming Eclipse Hackathon at Tasktop’s New Nest

by Dominika Lacka, November 7th, 2012

It’s been an exciting time for Tasktop. Our Vancouver Headquarters has moved to a new West Georgia location, overlooking Vancouver’s cool Coal Harbor and beautiful Stanley Park, and sporting a spacious 7,000 square feet runway for us to ‘grow into’.

Our old office has been great but we’ve grown so much over the last year that it just couldn’t hold us any longer. We wanted something in the same part of town, that reflected the kind of company we are and we found it!

We finally moved to our new digs last week and are loving it. We’re especially pleased about the great restaurants on nearby Robson street, beautiful walking areas in Coal Harbour and Stanley Park, and we can’t wait to meet our new neighbours.

Want a chance to check out our new space and meet some interesting people? Join us for the Eclipse DemoCamp Hackathon on November 13th, held at our new corporate headquarters on 1100-1500 West Georgia Street. If last year’s event is any indication, this year’s Hackathon should be a smashing success.

Expect to meet a bunch of bright, friendly software-oriented folks from all walks of life in a fun and casual atmosphere, get satisfaction from sharing your knowledge and experience, and learn from others. If you’re interested in Open Source and especially Mylyn (Tasks, WikiText, Team/SCM, etc.) you’ll get a lot out of this event.

If you’re an Eclipse committer come and share your expertise and knowledge. Everyone is welcome to attend. Here are last year’s hackers busy at work during last year’s Hackathon.

When: Tuesday, November 13th, 5:30pm – late (whenever you finish hacking)
Where:   Tasktop HQ 1100-1500 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
Register:   Add your name to the Hackathon wiki page

If you plan on attending please put your name on the Hackathon wiki page. Bring your coding hat, and pizza, snacks and drinks are on us. Thanks to our co-organizers, VMware, for making this event possible.

And now, back to nesting…
