What is the QA Hackathon?

A coding workshop for people involved in Quality Assurance, testing, packaging, CPAN, and other related projects. Though not necessarily exclusive to Perl projects, many of the attendees will be planning to work on projects with a direct benefit to the Perl language.

The Birmingham QA Hackathon is a follow up to the 2008 QA Hackathon held in Oslo, which was a great success by the Perl and Open Source communities, as well as the attendees.

When and where is it happening?

The hackathon will be a 3-day event, taking place from Saturday March 28th to Monday March 30th 2009, in Birmingham (UK).

The venue will be The City Inn, in Birmingham city centre, and will be within easy reach of accommodation and transport links.

Birmingham has easy access to the major international airports in the UK, including its own Birmingham International Airport (BHX), with rail links to many major towns and cities in the UK, and continental Europe via the EuroTunnel. We will put more detailed directions online soon.
