1== CHICKEN Coding Jam 2021

3Due to the current difficulties to have a physical  CHICKEN meetup, we plan
4to do it online instead, to get together to hack, show and tell.

6As we need to set new goals for the next CHICKEN release, this meeting will
7be an opportunity to collect ideas, discuss them and plan how and when to
8implement improvements, bug fixes and/or new features for CHICKEN 6. If you
9have suggestions, please create a document that describes the changes you
10have in mind, ideally as a page in this wiki, the more detailed it is and the more
11thought out, the better, as this makes it easier to assess the feasability and the required work
12for what should go into the next release(s). These projects may be ambitious,
13but if they are, then some thought should have gone into it, in other words:
14just asking for native thread support without some concrete idea of how to
15do that is not going to make it ... :-)

17We plan to use Jitsi video conferencing, the hosting of which is kindly provided by
18[[http://www.bevuta.com|bevuta IT GmbH]]. IRC is of course also available for separate
19discussions and frequent consulting of Vandusen in philosophical matters.

21The event will take place from Friday to Sunday in March or April, the exact date is
22not yet settled, please have a look at our
23[[https://doodle.com/poll/qbrqfr39fb8kxdwt|Doodle poll]] and mark the weekends when you
24will be willing to participate. It is planned to start Fridays at noon (CET) and keep it
25open for 48 hours until Sunday noon, so there will be opportunities to join for people
26of all timezones.
27
28It would be great if participants are willing to give talks or presentations on interesting
29subjects, please tell us if you'd like to show or present something so we can make up
30a schedule.
31
32Everybody is welcome (as bandwidth allows), so check your calendars.
33
34More details will follow once we have settled on a date.
