There is still plenty of space to register [1] for Hac phi 2010, but
time is running out to get a hotel room at a reduced rate --- if you
want the special rate for the block of rooms we have reserved at the
Club Quarters, you must contact the hotel by this Friday, April 23.
Instructions are on the wiki [2].

If you have been thinking of coming but are not sure, let me emphasize
that last year's Hac phi was great fun---it will be an excellent time
to make new friends, expand your brain, eat good food, and of course
write some Haskell.  You are welcome and encouraged to attend whether
you just want to learn Haskell or have been using it for 10 years!
You also do not have to come for the whole time; feel free to come
just for a day or even an afternoon.  The original announcement is



Hac phi 2010 is a Haskell hackathon/get-together to be held May 21-23
at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.  The hackathon will
officially kick off at 2:30 Friday afternoon, and go until 5pm on
Sunday (with breaks for sleep, of course).  Last year's Hac phi was a
lot of fun, and many people have already expressed interest in coming
back this year.  I want to stress that everyone is welcome---you do
not have to be a Haskell guru to attend!  Helping hack on someone
else's project could be a great way to increase your Haskell-fu.

If you plan on coming, please officially register [1].  Registration,
travel, lodging and many other details can be found on the Hac phi
wiki [2].  Note that we're in a different space this year and may have
to cap attendance, so register early.

We're also looking for a few people interested in giving short (15-20
min.) talks, probably on Saturday afternoon.  Anything of interest to
the Haskell community is fair game---a project you've been working on,
a paper, a quick tutorial.  If you'd like to give a talk, add it on
the wiki [3].

Hope to see you in Philadelphia!
