Join us for one week starting Saturday April 25th for the first
The D Hackathon is one week of intense participation and
collaboration on anything and everything related to the D
All participants are encouraged to collaborate on the online
forums (http://forum.dlang.org/group/digitalmars.D), github
repos (https://github.com/D-Programming-Language), IRC (#d on
irc.freenode.net, use your favorite IRC client or
Please prepend forum posts related to hackathon with
"[hackathon]". (There should be little else!)
Complete n00bs are encouraged to participate (tell your
friends!) and part of the purpose of the D Hackathon is to
lower the barrier to entry for would-be collaborators by means
of better documentation and tooling.
Let's focus on creating a better, more inviting out-of-the-box
experience for everyone, and above all a better D language.
We'll officially measure hackathon results by the number of
preexisting bugs fixed, but do feel free to work on anything
you think is important to you. There is no other rule than
getting good work done.
See you in one week!
This sounds awesome!

I've run into a few problems with building the website and
documentation. DMD, druntime and phobos all build easily but
dlang.org sources are a pain. I wonder if anyone has built the
website recently from scratch to make sure it all works?
Also the tools repository needs work to build too. This is
because of the `if(arr)` warnings. I think there are pull
requests waiting but until they are merged a few of the tools
are broken which breaks the whole build. Dustmite also needs to
be amended upstream.
