Google Wave Hackathon and Federation Day: July 20, 21 in Mountain View

Wednesday, July 8, 2009 | 2:56 PM

On July 20th and 21st the Google Wave team is organizing a couple of events at the Googleplex that'll give you an opportunity to dive into hacking on the Google Wave APIs and learn more about the Google Wave Federation Protocol.

As described on the hackathon agenda, on Monday (July 20th), we'll kick things off exploring the various APIs for Google Wave (with demos, of course), we'll chat over lunch, and then have open time for hacking with the Google Wave team sitting just a chair or so over. If you'd like to attend the event, please check out this form.

Following that event, on Tuesday (July 21st), we have Google Wave Federation Day -- the inaugural event for people who are looking to get involved by providing their own wave services. We'll discuss in depth the underlying protocol and system architecture, and show some new demos that illustrate how the system works. After lunch, we'll have discussion sessions to brainstorm about some of the technology (e.g. Operational Transformation) and the challenges (e.g. Spam). If you are interested in attending, please submit this form.

Both events will be held at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. Lunch, wifi, and power will be provided.

Hope to see you there!
