     23=== Coding Sprint ===
    1725The coding sprint session provides an opportunity for members of the GENI community to come work side by side with each other.  GENI software developers will implement code on a topic selected in advance.  Meanwhile, GENI experimenters can setup their own experiments with support from the GPO and other members of the GENI community.
    2331It is anticipated that most participants will attend in person, but a telephone and jabber chatroom will be set up for those unable to attend in person.
     33=== Hackfest ===
     35At this open event, experimenters will have the opportunity to join a design jam facilitated by the Mozilla Foundation. We will strategize and prototype apps that make the power of next-gen networks real and visible for more people.
     37Through the Ignite Apps Challenge (, NSF and Mozilla want to help people build things that show off the cool opportunities that GENI presents, especially in national priority areas like health IT, distance education, clean energy and public safety. Over the course of the year, NSF and Mozilla are offering $500k in funding and valuable mentorship to help get these apps off the ground.
     39Compelling designs from this session could evolve into submissions to the challenge, with seed money and mentorship available to help get them off the ground.
     41If you're more interested in architectural, design, and documentation issues around GENI, drop in and meet with GPO staff and GENI developers. This session provides an opportunity for both developers and experimenters to work on the things that matter to them.
     43All GEC attendees are welcome to participate in the combined event. LA-area web developers, designers and civic leaders are also invited to register for free. Invite your developer friends to this open event!
     45Looking forward to seeing you @ 1-9 pm Thursday March 15th. Nourishment will be served.
