forward to see what comes out of it!

> Hi all,
> We have a pile of awesome development and markcom work still up for the
> grabs. In order to celebrate that this work is still up for anyone to do,
> we're going to organise the first iRail hack day of 2014!
> Registration: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/irail-hack-day-2014-tickets-
> What's the schedule and who do we need?
> The 5th of September at 10am we're assembling in Ghent (exact location to
> be announced). We will divide in 3 teams:
> 1. The hyperRail developers team:
> This is a small team who is fixing issues over here:
> https://github.com/iRail/hyperRail/issues already consisting of: Nico
> Verbruggen, Sam Hendrickx, Brecht Van de Vyvere and myself. There's still
> room for more though!
> 2. The strategic team:
> iRail is more than just an app. We're a community of people that wants to
> make getting around in Belgium easier by wrangling data. How do we proceed
> though? What communication channels should we deprecate? Which should we
> keep? Are you writing our next blog posts, tweets or facebook messages?
> 3. The app developers and API reusers
> Are you already creating an app on top of the iRail API? Great! Come along
> and talk with the developers about new features (did you know you will be
> able gather check-ins in trains from your users with the iRail API?).
> Are you someone who is planning to create an app? We're willing to give
> you crash courses for your specific platform. Come along!
> What do we still need?
> - A location for ~10 to 20 people. Can you provide us that? Great! You're
> our main sponsor!
> - Food and drinks!
> - You! (if you fit in one of the 3 groups)
> So, this first hack day focuses on iRail.be and its API with a limited
> amount of people in order to keep productivity. The next hack day will be
> about adding more datasets such as De Lijn, MIVB/STIB and TEC.
> Kind regards,
> +32 486 74 71 22
> Open Knowledge Foundation Belgium
> Open Transport Working Group OKFN
Met vriendelijke groeten,
