It is our pleasure to announce that, like in previous years, ZuriHac
will also take place in 2018 -- from Friday June 8th to Sunday the 10th.
It will be hosted at the Hochschule Rapperswil right besides the
beautiful lake Zurich, like last year.

The Zurich Haskell Hackathon is a free (as in beer), international,
grassroots collaborative coding festival whose goal is to expand the
community and to build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and
infrastructure.  This is already the 7th Haskell Hackathon in Zurich!

This year, we will enjoy keynotes from:

- Niki Vazou
- Edward Kmett
- Stephen Diehl

More keynote speakers will be announced.

This event is open to any experience level, from beginners to gurus.
This year, Julie Moronuki, co-author of Haskell Programming from first
principles [1], has kindly agreed to teach a beginners course in one of
the classrooms we have available.  Additionally, there will be mentors
on site whom you can directly approach during the whole event with any
Haskell-related question you have.

This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Haskellers in real life,
find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and
tools or even start new ones!

We will have space for 300 attendees.  Registration will open on 6th of
December.  You can find more information on our website [2].

We would also like to thank our sponsors Digital Asset [3] and HSR [4]
for supporting this great event!

Looking forward to see you there,
the Zurich HaskellerZ meetup group
