Canberra Google Wave Hackathon Day – 8th August

I’ve been helping to organise a Google Wave Hackathon Day in Canberra. It is going to be on Saturday 8th August at ANU.  Here is the flyer for it:

PROGRAM:

9:30am Registration
10:00am Talks
A  presenter from Google (details available soon) will give an introduction to the Wave API.
If you have already been developing for Wave, please consider giving a short presentation about what you have done (doesn’t have to be a formal presentation).
12:00 pm Brainstorming Lunch (BYO or we will take orders & payment for pizza at registration)
1:00 pm Hacking
5:00 pm Demos
7:00 pm Head out for dinner at restaurant (at your own cost).

LOCATION:  Room N101, CIST Building, ANU, North Road, Canberra

You must register if you wish to attend so that a Google Wave Developer sandbox account can be created for you.  Registrations will close on Tuesday, 4th August so that the accounts can be created. Numbers are limited, so please register as soon as possible at:  http://tr.im/cbrwave

This day is being organised by volunteers who are interested in Google Wave development and thought it would be useful to have a Google Wave developers day in Canberra. Please indicate if you are willing to assist with organising and running the day. Contact brenda@moon.net.au for more information.

We will be providing WiFi internet access, but you will need to bring your own computer. Please have a look at the developer information on the Google Wave site (http://code.google.com/apis/wave/) as an introduction.

Inspired

I’ve been having a lot of fun recently collaborating with Eleanor Gates-Stuart and Barry Moon. We’ve setup a website for our project –  m o o n s t u a r t   – at moonstuart.net.

We’re showing an installation called boidSong in the “Inspired” art exhibition at The Front Gallery in Lyneham from the 20th-25th August as part of National Science Week.

The opening is at 8pm on Wednesday 20th August.
