Tomorrow I'll be at SuperHappyDevHouse Aotearoa, the NZ version of the US SuperHappyDevHouse held monthly in the SF bay area.

I still haven't grasped what it is about, so I just report the "official" description:

SuperHappyDevHouse Aotearoa is inspired by SuperHappyDevHouse, a monthly hackathon event in the US, combining serious and not-so-serious productivity with a fun and exciting party atmosphere.

The whole thing is about rapid development, ad-hoc collaboration and cross pollination. Hardcore coders, l33t hax0r, passionate designers, and other types that enjoy software and technology development will be at home in the SuperHappyDevHouse.

This is not a marketing event. It's intended for passionate and creative technical people that want to have some fun, learn new things, and meet new people.

There will be 45 attendants (including Ivan Porto Carrero, the 3 guys from Mindscape, Darryl Burling and other 39 LAMP/Linux developers), a lot of lightning talks, from complex linux programming stuff to lighter "social" talks, and free food and drinks from 10am to 5pm.

From what I understood it should be a place where "creative technical people" meet, work on their projects, show them to the other guys, collaborate and maybe come out with some new ideas.

Probably I'll work more on Subtext Plugin Framework (unfortunately I don't have Vista on my laptop, so cannot work on the CC.NET Monitor Gadget).

Will tell you my impressions on the shdh in the next few days.

>> unfortunately I don't have Vista on my laptop

Sounds like it's time to step up and purchase that MacBook Pro you've been lusting after for so long. :)

I think I'm going to wait until the October time-frame to get mine - I hear they are going to release a new version around then. Supposedly it will be thinner, better screen, new multi-touch pad, etc...

And in Octeber there should be the new OS X Tiger as well.
Probably I'm going to install a VM with Vista on my laptop otherwise will not be able to go on with the vista gadget when I move back to Italy in less then a month
