During this month of September, Crystal Space programmers will gather in Barcelona, Spain, for a harsh time of coding. They all share a common interest in the development of Crystal Space, which is why the developers are meeting. This is made possible by the Spanish company ikusnet, who is paying for all the expenses.
A hackfest (known as hackathons more commonly) is an event when programmers meet to do collaborative computer programming. These events are typically between several days and a week in length.
Amir Taaki, Seth Yastrov, Pablo Martin and others present for entire duration.
