Pinned toot

Hi fediverse! Hacker Beach is a month-long, spontaneous, self-organized gathering of hackers and like-minded people on a tropical island (or coast). It happens every year in January, since 2012.

We mostly communicate and plan via IRC, but you can find some stuff and links on our notoriously outdated website: hackerbeach.org

Join us next January for our 6th adventure!

Speaking of which, @hackerbeach episode 7 isn't too far away (January), and you should book a ticket to the Philippines soon-ish, if you want to catch a cheap one.

Questions? AMA.

We just built us a little LED sign for putting on a table during @hackerbeach. First version:

Current location search for Hacker Beach #7 (January 2019) has everyone excited about Uruguay. If anyone has suggestions for particular coastal villages or towns there, we're all ears!

Sénégal has some of the prettiest beaches that has seen so far. (And still time to book a flight to Dakar and join us on the way down to Banjul in the Gambia.)

Also, btw, we updated the wiki and made it work properly on small screens.

First photos of Popenguine are on the wiki (second stop of our special episode 6, road trippin' from Sénégal to the Gambia): wiki.hackerbeach.org/index.php

We have our second confirmed stop: Popenguine, ~70km South of Dakar. Only ~30 minutes from DSS airport: wiki.hackerbeach.org/index.php -- Still time to book your flight and join us!

The wiki page for episode 6 has seen lots of edits today: wiki.hackerbeach.org/index.php

Be sure to help with adding information for your fellow hackers!

If you're at , and you're interested in working from West-African beaches with a bunch of friendly hackers in January, just give us a shout! We can meet and answer all your questions.

... epsidodes are a real thing, of course. You heard it here first.

We're rather late with location decisions and announcements this year, but:

If you'd like to join Hacker Beach Epsidode 6, it's safe to buy flights to Dakar, Sénégal, for whenever you want to join in January!

Location search for next January is circling in on Sénégal. If anyone has tips, connections, etc., we're all ears!

On my way to Köln to join @bkero and @bumi. Then @SHA2017camp later this week. Ping me if you want to meet and chat about @kosmos, @remotestorage or @hackerbeach!
