The Wikimedia Foundation will be hosting a hack-a-thon in New Orleans
on October 14, 15, and 16. Since our communities will be working
together on Ensemble in Wikimedia Labs, I'd like to invite everyone to

The theme of this event: "the infrastructure of innovation". We're
going to improve and discuss the Wikimedia Labs project's
infrastructure and other stuff that makes it easier for anyone to
supercharge Wikimedia with awesomeness. We're going to work on our
gadgets/extensions/tools support, authorization/authentication
strategy, dev-ops virtualization, and general training and hacking.

It's mostly going to be dev sprints and bugsmashing, with some
discussion and workshops. We'll definitely be having some in-depth
architecture discussions and planning for Ensemble.
