The Ubuntu New Jersey Local Community Team invites you to our February
Linux Hack Fest, which will be February 23rd from noon - midnight.

Like a LAN party, a HackFest usually takes place on a weekend
afternoon and evening. We start by getting a room with power,
Internet, and a nearby bathroom. We stock the room with pizza, cola,
and maybe beer. We put ourselves and our computers in the room, lock
the door, and we don't come out for 12 hours.

Bug fixing is dull; a HackFest is fun. We reward people for fixing
bugs. Hugs, pizza slices, colas, beers, and group cheers are common
rewards. We reward people for asking for help. Help Me Bingo
encourages people to share their problems and rewards problem solvers.
We reward people for coming. The good will of the Ubuntu community we
earn by our efforts, and we'll share it around by attaching the name
of every HackFest attendee to our scorecard on the Ubuntu Wiki.

A HackFest is open to everyone. Artists can fix artwork bugs. Writers
can fix documentation bugs. Programmers can fix programing bugs.
Everyone can fix easy bugs.

There are no bosses at a HackFest. Nobody will stop you from
socialising. Nobody will stop you from upgrading your computer. Nobody
will stop you from seeing how many beers it takes before you can't
compile a bootable kernel.

Cheers, and hope to see you there,
