Hackfests 2018

Tavmjong Bah

Hi All,

We will are planning two hackfests in the next few months. The first
will be in Boston March 26th through 30th. This is our main hackfest
for the year. It will take place at the RedHat office at 300 A Street
(easily accessible by pubic transport). A formal vote by the Inkscape
board to fund travel to this hackfest has not yet taken place but it is
envisioned that travel support will be the same as for last years Paris
hackfest.

A second mini-hackfest is tentatively planned be held in conjunction
with the LGM meeting in Seville, Spain April 26th through April 30th.
Details are still to be worked out. Google may be providing some
support for travel to LGM. They are interested in adding Variable Font
support to Inkscape. The Inkscape board has discussed funding travel
for Inkscape developers to this hackfest up to a limit of half that for
the main hackfest.

Details for the hackfests can be found on the Inkscape wiki at:

Boston:  http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Hackfest2018
Seville: http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Hackfest2018_LGM

What we need from you:

If you are interested in attending either hackfest, please add your
name to the list of attendees on the wiki:

Boston:  http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Hackfest2018_Attendees
Seville: http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Hackfest2018_LGM_Atten
dees

I'll probably not be attending this year, sadly.
I don't have the funds to fly over, and I don't feel the benefit of my
being there in person is enough for the Project to shell out funds for
me to attend.

I would be interested in attending, but I'm already paying my own way to attend (and hopefully present at) the Libre Graphics track at SCaLE that month, so I wouldn't be able to afford the travel to Boston. If it turns out we have enough funding to cover my costs to be there even a couple days, I think it would be valuable to capture some video and interviews to cut together for promoting the project. I'd also be interested in spending some time with Martin (and anyone else interested) designing a next-generation website (that's part of what I do for a living after all) if there was any interest in that. I know our funds are limited, so I don't want to take away from the core purpose of the event. Any interest in those items?
