Tickets being released in batches of 100 between now and the event. If you've missed this batch - don't worry there are more to come.
It's Mashed! Yeah so we did Hack Day last year and it was bloody good - so good in fact that we've decided to do it again. This year we're stepping out on our own, and in due deference to the very cool guys at Yahoo! (who's idea Hack Day is) we've decided to call it Mashed.
The idea is that by doing it on our own everybody will be able to come, the only rule is that to be a partner you have to bring something cool - no sponsorship, no corporate logos and no distractions from coding 'till dawn.
The format is the same, turn up Saturday morning, register and listen to some cool people talk, then start hacking at 1pm - carry on hacking (perhaps with some Wii fun in-between - but I'm trying to avoid lightening this time) till 1pm on the Sunday when everyone presents back to everyone else.
I'm trying to arrange something pretty cool for the Saturday night - but can't talk about it yet - it's going to be awesome though :-) Watch my blog.
Registration will go live about three weeks before (maybe a little sooner) and I'll post messages up here to let you know - we'll do the usual thing of releasing in waves so everyone gets a chance - if last year is anything to go by it'll be tough to get a ticket.
I'm also going to be anouncing a competition that will run in the lead up to the event - but that will be in two weeks - keep your eyes peeled.
