After catching up a bit with the sleep deficit from the past three days, let me share a few impressions from the spring 2012 Hamburg HackFest. An amazing number of 30+ people gathered over the weekend at the Hamburg Attraktor, socializing, chatting, and working on all kinds of stuff, like

iOS UNO bridges, Calc unit tests, CSV import, Writer border enhancements, gbuild system, pdf export watermarking, UI paper cut fixing, keyboard shortcuts, startup performance, icon themes, UI mockups, adding comments for l10n strings, rtf filter fixes, svg import, gtk3 backend, drawing layer, help content, Unhosted connector, QA processes, bibisect, gerrit, Impress wide screen support, Impress toolpanel configuration, win32 cross-compiling, and chart bugfixing.

Let me also take the opportunity to thank our sponsors and supporters, without whom this event would not have been possible. In no particular order, Attraktor e.V. for hosting us, The Document Foundation donors for providing the funds for travel bursaries, Lanedo and nerdshirt for drinks and tshirts, Italo and Christina for cooking wonderful pasta, my co-organizers Eike and Björn for doing lots of legwork & organization, including provisions for couch surfing – and of course all attendants for sharing their weekend and merry mood with us!
