The BBC and Microsoft are running a developer event in London called Mashed 08. It's a free gig and Microsoft has just released its tickets so make sure you register for them soon if you are interested in attending. The synopsis looks fun:
Mashed - it's Hack Day time again and this year we've got a corker of a weekend planned.
Arrive on the Saturday morning and listen to real people from the development world showing you how to build things and how to use the systems that will be available to you through-out the weekend - including a full broadcast TV station.
As the talks draw to a close the 24 hour hack begins - there's plenty of food (no it's not all pizza this year - think pie and mash) - distractions for when you need them and if all goes to plan a special event at midnight.
Sunday plods on to the live presentations at 2pm - hosted by a very very special guest star... if you thought last year was a great time - this year we'll blow your socks off.
It's all about you, if you want something let us know and we'll organise it.
