Google Open Source recently co-sponsored a three-day hackathon for Haskell, an open source functional programming language. Ivan Krišto from Google’s Zürich office talks more about the event below.
Over the weekend of June 9th, Rapperswil, Switzerland became a home for 300 Haskellers. Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil hosted the seventh annual ZuriHac, the biggest Haskell Hackathon in Europe. ZuriHac is a free, international coding festival with the goal to expand our community and to build and improve Haskell libraries, tools and infrastructure.
Participants could choose to hack all day long, attend the Haskell beginners course led by Julie Moronuki, join the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) DevOps track organized by GHC contributors with the goal to bring in new contributors, listen to the Haskell flavoured talks, or socialize and swim in the lake. The event was colocated with C++ standardization committee meetings which offered a unique opportunity for sharing ideas between the two communities.
Here is a short summary of featured talks at ZuriHac.

On the weekend of July 22nd, 126 Haskell enthusiasts got together for another installment of ZuriHac, a yearly open source Haskell hackathon held in Zurich, Switzerland, and like the last two years it took place at Google Zurich.

On the weekend of May 29th, 120 Haskell enthusiasts got together for the 5th installment of ZuriHac, a yearly open source Haskell hackathon held in Zurich, Switzerland. This year we were back where it all started in 2010: the ground floor of the Google Zurich office.
The schedule was packed solid, and we also put together a complete three day experience for the many beginners in attendance. One room was dedicated to beginner talks and staffed by volunteer mentors (thanks all of you!) that made sure everyone had someone to turn to for questions or just some casual chatting about Haskell. Videos from three of those talks are now online: Monads by Example, Beginning Web Programming in Haskell, and Performance.
