BBC Yahoo! London Hack Day 2007

Have you applied (and been accepted) yet to the BBC Yahoo London Hack Day ?

Hack Day: London, June 16/17 2007

This is what you need to know before the day:

  • Doors open 9am at the Palm Court entrance of Alexandra Palace…
  • Talks start at 10am and run to 2pm when the hacking begins…
  • There will be wi-fi throughout, but no free computers. Bring your own!
  • There will be space to sleep if you want to bring a sleeping bag…
